In this episode I wanted to talk a little bit about the first Thanksgiving.
For its age, its definitely steeped in myth. In fact, the first Thanksgiving wasn’t really even thought of as a special event.
I talk about:
*What was probably not eaten at the first Thanksgiving including some that modern researchers doubt. I think they lack creative thinking though.
*What was probably served and eaten at the first Thanksgiving.
The best and only historical documentation that I know of is this letter from Edward Winslow.
