I’m sure it comes as no surprise that the story we’re teach of the first Thanksgiving isn’t true.
As I have studied history, I’ve learned not all that’s taught is true. There is also misinformation in history and even stuff that has been hidden. So, when it comes to history, it is definitely important to research and find out the truth.
This is not to say Thanksgiving is bad or should not be celebrated. I think it is important to give thanks. Native tribes and other peoples have always had celebrations for giving thanks. But, I also think it is important to know the real story of Thanksgiving, not the false history that is taught.
I read this article the other day about what really happened at the first Thanksgiving. It is the Wampanoag’s side of the story and it is a bit long, but I think, well-worth the read.
I hope everyone enjoys the article.
And I hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving tomorrow.
