You are probably referring to his October 3, 1863 proclamation which made Thanksgiving a national holiday. Prior to that, states commemorated it at different times. Journalist and women's magazine editor Sara Josepha Hale was among those who had been strongly advocating for one specific day to be set aside nationally for a Thanksgiving observance, and her view had been gathering momentum. Then, in late 1863, President Lincoln made the national observance of Thanksgiving official.

President Abraham Lincoln disliked "unprincepled" politicians who were obstructionists as he tried to hold the Republic intact; and he often disagreed with his generals (in private) because he knew how delicate his job had become in dealing with all factions as he tried to save the Union and Republic!

A lot of comparisons between Abraham Lincoln and water were made over the years. For one, water is considered the most powerful element on earth. Similarly, Lincoln was heralded for his determination, power, and strength in keeping the Union intact during the Civil War. Like water, Lincoln had immense fluidity when it came to dealing with both political opponents and supporters. Lincoln also believed in the purity of water and its health benefits in old age. This is why the President consumed large quantities of water and lemon on a daily basis.

Thanksgiving has launched a number of songs: Over the river and through the woods is best-known thematic song. It can be argued that ( Home for the Holidays) by Bing Crosby might actually be about Thanksgiving. Food is an abundant sub-themes, it seem to take place in a roadside restaurant on a major highway. There is no mention of Christmas in the song- or its customs- Santa Claus, trees, ornaments, even snow. All of the locations in the song are American. Thanksgiving is a uniquely American Holiday. On the church front there are several hymns dealing with Thanksgiving- No Thank we all Our God! and We Gather Together, two examples. But as you said Popular song- definitely Over the river and through the woods- and very probably Home For The Holidays.
