Posted on 11/25/2020 3:03:54 PM PST by River Hawk
Thanksgiving Day, November 26th this year, is an annual holiday in which we thank God for our blessings. It’s a source of nostalgic family memories of past Thanksgiving dinners, as well as remembering those who have passed away.
This year, 2020, is the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival to Plymouth Rock. Remember the song, “The year 1620 the Pilgrims came over …”?
Well, 1620 was 400 years ago.
Who were the Pilgrims?

Yes, and next year will be the 400th anniversary of the first thanksgiving.
While we do not know the actual day(s) of the first thanksgiving. We do know it took place over 3 days. (Assuming we still have a country,) it would be nice if the 400th anniversary was a 3 day event with President Trump and his next administration hosting 3 days of festivities that refocus our nation on what God has done then and for our nation ever since.
God has a plan. Thank you God.
400 years. Very cool...
Sounds like a great plan.
I hope PDJT hosts a yuge Thanksgiving bash and toasts the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival, which our PC culture refuses to salute and acknowledge.
My Mayflower ancestor. My paternal grandmother was an active member of the Mayflower Society.
Would be nice to see wouldn’t it.
Very interesting. I notice in the article that there is a monument in a graveyard that speaks of your forebear’s
“piety, usefulness and agency in the public transactions of his time.” Sounds good.
In the beginning, the Pilgrims were just an independent autonomous assembly of a few Christians that met for study and worship near the little town of Scrooby in Nottinghamshire. Their church was outside the law, and they were persecuted by the Church of England bishops, even being jailed for it. Finding this condemnation too hard to bear, they secretly left England and reestablished themselves in Holland for some time. There, they were tolerated, and learned how to work out their unity as a church family.
My 9th great-grandfather was George Soule. He came over on the “Mayflower,” and was a signer of the “Mayflower Compact.” He settled in Duxbury, Massachusetts. There is a reproduction of his house at Plimoth Plantation. I was planning on going there this year, but that idea went to hell.
Yes, I’ve read that name in the literature about the colony. Well, maybe next year you can go, hopefully.
Yeah, if they haven't turned this country into a shit-hole, or put us all in a commie gulag, and they haven't torn down all the historic sites.
