Did you know that the "First Thanksgiving" was not actually the first Thanksgiving? Or that some of the Native Americans who greeted the Pilgrims already spoke English? Or that the Thanksgiving feast of 1621 was actually a three day celebration, and that turkey was probably not on the menu? Join us as we explore the truth about Thanksgiving, and familiarize ourselves with the German version of Thanksgiving, Erntedankfest, and its own unique customs. Our special guest is historian and genealogist Joan Shurtliff, who has studied the Pilgrims' Thanksgiving celebration and will take us beyond the traditional story.
