Thankful Pilgrims

Looking back approaching 400 years one can see why those first Pilgrims had a lot to be thankful for.  Their boat, the Mayflower, made it across the Atlantic Ocean.  We can only ponder how many perished in similar boats before their success.  And indeed we can think of all those boats which have been lost with all hands since.  The Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620 can be grateful that Iroquois Native Americans were not more numerous and more belligerent. November Thanksgiving - Pilgrims Mayflower

The Pilgrims who sailed on the Mayflower were members of the English Separatist Church (a Puritan sect).  They fled from persecution in England and took the opportunity of a better life in America.  Puritans negotiated with a London stock company to finance the pilgrimage to America.  However, 2/3 of those aboard the Mayflower were not Separatists, they just went along for the adventure and the opportunity. 

That first winter on 1620 was severe and by the fall of 1621 almost half of the original 102 settlers had died of hardship.  However, the vegetables were new to the Pilgrims and they needed help from the Iroquois Indians to grow crops such as maize and pumpkins.  Thanks to the skill of native Indians like Squanto, and good fortune, the harvest of 1621 was bountiful.

Governor William Bradford famously sent 'four men fowling'. They returned with deer, wild ducks and geese. While they probably did not have turkey as we know it, the Pilgrims coined the word 'turkey' as a generic term for any wild fowl. The resulting feast was more like an English harvest festival than a true Thanksgiving observance.
