This was the first Thanksgiving under ‘civil’ authority.
This is the one I feel is real
National Observances of Thanksgiving didn’t Occur Until Much Later
John Hanson, who was president of the Continental Congress, on October 11, 1782, declared that the fourth Thursday of every November was to be a Thanksgiving Day.
Then September 25, 1789, Congressman Elias Boudinot, from New Jersey, proposed that the House and Senate jointly request of President Washington to proclaim a day of thanksgiving for “the many signal favors of Almighty God”, one day after the House of Reps voted to recommend the First Amendment of the newly drafted Constitution to the states for ratification.
October 3, 1789, George Washington created the first Thanksgiving Day designated by the national government of the United States of America.
Many Lessons Should be Learned From the True Story of Thanksgiving
Communism doesn’t work.
People are lazy and selfish
People don’t want to work for the gain of others (much of the welfare system)
People GIVE when they see a need, because it feels good
Russia screwed up as well
Population was small so they could turn their mistakes around
Shared land worked but shared gain did not
Guess what our new governmental system is starting to resemble
We should all be prepared for rough times as these
We should know how to hunt, fish, trap, build, and much more.
Half of the Separatist population died in the first year because they had no idea what they were doing
If you ever end up in a situation with minimal or no support, it would do you well to be self-sufficient
If hard times hit, it would be a good idea to have a small community, or neighborhood of “like-minded” people that can work to a common goal of sustainability and survival.
This includes people that have needed skills, and those that are generous to help others.
Have a Happy and Fun Filled Thanksgiving!!!
Learn a new, self-reliant skill this holiday weekend.
