2015 Thanksgiving Compilation

Some of my favorite videos and link this year are listed below.

Myths About the First Thanksgiving (Turkey, "Busiest Travel Day," Edward Winslow's Letter, Pilgrims, Wampanoag/Ramona Peters, etc.)

MTV's "Decoded" Series is fabulous, in general, and their "What Thanksgiving Got Wrong" hits many the key points in an easily accessible (humorous) skit.

The "Real Story" has history of Presidential involvement; choosing the date and it's problems; sports games; parades and their balloons; and Plimoth Plantation.

The British connection give more information on the pilgrims and widens all perspectives.

Catholic View of Thanksgiving (Tisquantum's story)

What did they really eat?
