The Story:

  1. What is the typical story of thanksgiving?

    1. 1621

    2. The feast was actually a hunting party and it lasted 3 days long.

      1. There was no thanksgiving

  2. Another view: Genocide

    1. 1637

    2. 700 indians killed

    3. Massachusetts Bay Colony

    4. Puritans

    5. Gov. John Winthrop

  3. My opinion based on the facts

    1. 1620 Landed and founded New Plymouth

      1. Half of the colony starved and got sick

    2. New Plymouth Colony were seperatists (English Disinters)

    3. Pathetic hunters and horrible butchers

      1. English City Folk

    4. Squanto

      1. Returned from slavery in England, knew their language.

      2. Taught them to hunt game, fish cod, and trap for hides, and grow corn.

      3. This tied into the 1621 period.

    5. Communism

      1. They shared land and production

      2. By 1623, it didn’t work, it was failing BIG.

      3. Gov. William Bradfords book “Of Plymouth Plantation” told story

      4. In 1623, they held a meeting.

        1. Decided to share land, but not production.

        2. Raging success.

      5. Doing well until drought

        1. Lack of food pushed them into “humiliation” (prayer and fasting)

          1. After each one, they had meals.

          2. They became more frequent

        2. Drought subsided with a 14 day rain.

          1. All crops revived.

      6. People attributed the rain and large harvest to God

        1. Governor Bradford proclaimed November 29th 1623, a day of thanksgiving.

        2. There was no sharing of food with the Natives.

        3. This was the first Thanksgiving under ‘civil’ authority.

        4. This is the one I feel is real

  4. National Observances of Thanksgiving

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. October 3, 1789, George Washington created the first Thanksgiving Day designated by the national government of the United States of America.

  5. Lessons Learned from The Real Thanksgiving

    1. Communism doesn’t work.

      1. People are lazy and selfish

      2. People don’t want to work for the gain of others (much of the welfare system)

        1. People GIVE when they see a need, because it feels good

      3. Russia screwed up as well

      4. Population was small so they could turn their mistakes around

      5. Shared land worked but shared gain did not

      6. Guess what our new governmental system is starting to resemble

    2. We should all be prepared for rough times as these

      1. We should know how to hunt, fish, trap, build, and much more.

        1. Half of the Separatist population died in the first year because they had no idea what they were doing

        2. If you ever end up in a situation with minimal or no support, it would do you well to be self-sufficient

    3. 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.

      1. This includes people that have needed skills, and those that are generous to help others.
