The truth of the first Thanksgiving
What’s the Truth About the First Thanksgiving?
A short educational video by PragerU
I used to really enjoy Medved’s history programs...since he outed himself as an ardent NeverTrumper, I’m forced to wonder (simply on a guilt-by-association sort of basis) about how accurate they are.
Back a number of years, Medved put up a good enough front that ElRushbo had him as a guest host several times. Then something blew his cover. I don’t remember what, but he’s been on my craplist since long before DJT came down the escalator. I think his slide began when he moved to Seattle.
Medved is a Cheap Labor Express propagandist.
He has backed every amnesty attempt since 2006.
Same as Flimsey Grahamnesty.
Step off pilgrims: The real first Thanksgiving wasnt in Massachusetts
Plymouth has been stealing our thunder far too long 394 years to be exact.
Its time to put away the pilgrim hats and forget about the Mayflower. The real first Thanksgiving happened right here in Virginia, nearly two years before the historic feast that gets all the credit for our modern-day holiday.
It happened on Dec. 4, 1619 at the Berkeley Hundred in Charles City County along the James River and its still celebrated every year with a First Thanksgiving festival at the plantation.
It was that day that 38 settlers, funded by the Virginia Company of London and led by Captain John Woodlief, arrived at Berkeley and proclaimed: We ordaine that the day of our ships arrival at the place assigned for plantation, in the land of Virginia, shall be yearly and perpetually keept holy as a day of Thanksgiving to Almighty God.
They even documented it in writing for the sake of history.
But through the centuries, for reasons unknown, its the pilgrims of Plymouth Rock who get all glory for the Thanksgiving holiday, even though their feast wasnt until sometime between Sept. 21 and Nov. 8, 1621.
I (((heart))) Michael Medved.
Thank you for that link!
