The History of the First Thanksgiving

The first Thanksgiving was a harvest celebration held by the pilgrims of Plymouth colony sometime between September and November of 1621. It became a Federal holiday in 1863, when Lincoln issued the proclamation as he thanked the Union troops for their critical victory in Gettysburg.

Many myths surround the first Thanksgiving as very little is actually known about the event as there are only two firsthand accounts of the feast ever written. The first account is William Bradford’s journal titled Of Plymouth Plantation and the other is a publication written by Edward Winslow titled Mourt’s Relations.

What is known is that the pilgrims held the first Thanksgiving feast to celebrate the successful fall harvest, with the help of the local Wampanoag tribe.

Attendees included only 53 pilgrims and 90 Wampanoag Indians as the rest of the 102 colonists on the Mayflower died from disease and starvation.

Communication was possible between the pilgrims and the Indians, as a young man named Squanto spoke fluent English. Squanto learned English prior to the pilgrim’s arrival after he was captured by English explorers and spent time in Europe as a slave.
