After reading the article Stephanie referred to, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/11/19/AR2007111901695.html, I must say that it looks like the first Thanksgiving was actually in Virginia. However, since there were no survivors of that Thanksgiving, I suppose the one we celebrate today is a happier story.
There is so much more to the Massachusetts story I didn’t mention such as the fact that the "Pilgrams" first emigrated to Holland before coming to the "New World." It is a very interesting story.
Hope you are all enjoying your day, gail
