U.S. Mother's Day celebrations began in the early 20th century. It was founded by a woman named Anna Jarvis, who wanted to create a memory for her mother, Anne Reeves Jarvis, at St. Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.
Anne Reeves Jarvis was a peace activist who treated wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War. She founded day labor clubs for mothers who cared for public health issues. Her daughter Anna wanted to honor her mother's memory and cherish all the mothers in the world because she believed that "mothers are the human beings who do for you more than any other person in the world."
Anna Jarvis' campaign began in 1905, the year her mother died. In 1908, the US Congress rejected the proposal to make Mother's Day an official holiday, joking that they would soon have to declare "Mother's Day" as well.
However, thanks to the efforts of Anna Jarvis, in 1911 all American states marked the holiday, with some of them making it an official holiday. The first state to celebrate the holiday was West Virginia, the state of the Jarvis family, in 1910.
In 1914, US President Woodrow Wilson signed a Mother's Day proclamation, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday in honor of mothers.
