Storyboard Text

  • The first Thanksgiving was always said to be the peaceful meeting between the pilgrims and the Native Americans.
  • This happened to be the true part of the Thanksgiving story. However, it was called the Plymouth Harvest Festival.
  • One of the facts from the story that is commonly missed is the fact that turkey was the main course in the feast.
  • Instead, Nathaniel Philbrick states in the commentary called Debunking Pilgrim Myths: The First Thanksgiving claims that "most of the celebrants stood, squatted, or sat as they clustered around fires where the deer and birds turned on wooden spits."
  • It is also believed that the celebration was held outdoors. The real Thanksgiving also had no women at the celebration. It was believed that they were all in the back preparing the meal.
  • This is some of the major differences between what we have heard all of our lives and what really happened.
