Reviews - What do customers think about The First Thanksgiving Feast?
Historical Aug 17, 2007
This book successfully recaptures images of the original pilgrims of Plymouth colony celebrating the first Thanksgiving from the first crops the first year they landed in 1620. They celebrated with the Wampanoags Indians. The book mostly consists of these pictures with about a paragraph a page. My family has celebrated thanksgiving every year since I was a baby. In the 1800s, the 5th president Abe Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday to be held on the fourth Thursday in November. Gather around the turkey and pile on all the fixings.
