Subject: RE: BS: Thanksgiving historical corrections (USA)
A good many of the amendments above are reasonably accurate kat. I would mention that ordinary Indian corn (maize) varieties were popped on the cob long before anyone else tried it, and cranberries have been part of Eastern Woodland cookery for generations uncounted.

Giving thanks to a Creator is also not new. That doesn't lessen the value of the early colonists' gratitude to God and to the First Nations.

I am thankful for this community.
