The REAL DEAL, concering Thanksgiving...

"...no Mayflower...no, indigenous people bringing corn, squash, and wild turkeys to celebrate a Fall out-door feast at the Pilgrim's Table.......nope, nope, ....nope!"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THIS------> is what the American Thanksgiving Holiday is/was about.... My grade school teachers lied to me.....I am so...traumatized, lol!

The National Thanksgiving Proclamation was the first formal proclamation of Thanksgiving in the United States. President George Washington declared Thursday, November 26, 1789 as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer.

....and THIS lil bit 'o information,...is why it is the date it is, now.........

The first thanksgiving in the land that would later become the United States, was not held by the English pilgrims at Plymouth

It was held at the Spanish colony in St Augustine Florida, fifty years earlier.

Kinda funny how people are calling Spanish speaking people from central america an 'invasion' when Spain was here before the English.
