Father’s Day started in 1909 when Sonora Smart Dodd, who was at church on the newly recognized Mother’s Day, listened to the sermon at a Central Methodist Episcopal Church and thought about how they were celebrating the life of her mother who had died in childbirth when Sonora was 16 years old. Her father, Henry Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran and farmer, was raising Sonora and her five siblings as a single parent in Washington. Sonora decided she wanted a way to also celebrate and thank her dad with a special day to honor his sacrifices for their family.
