I believe what many think was the "first" Thanksgiving was nothing of the kind. Many historical documents have been gone over, and there are none to substantiate these events. Yet another "folk tale" for people to misinterpret. No matter. It's what we make of it now. Yes, thank God we still have a Thanksgiving . . .

I expect Ray it all depended on the settlers, some may have welcomed the visit.

Some probably refused to accept friendship. About the same as most folk are today.

Some Indians were probably aggrieved at having newcomers on the land. We groan if a house is built behind or in front of us.

dearest...nice post and I agree that this is one of those Historical events that don't really matter how much is myth...it brings families and friends to gather together to break bread and give thanks for their blessings. Also if families are split with divorce and distance, if christmas is not possible to get together thn perhasp Thanksgiving instead. Have a lovely day my dear darling friend.....but don't ANYONE come and shoot my Turkey family. LOL
