In school, we learn about Thanksgiving at the third grade level. Teachers make it sound like a fairy tale about pilgrims with buckles on the hats and peaceful natives who greet them with open arms.
But there is a lot more to the history of Thanksgiving that we never learn. In this presentation, I present historical facts about the holiday to help us understand what the world was like in 1620 and what motivated a group of "pilgrims" to embark on a dangerous one-way voyage across the North Atlantic.
