The REAL Thanksgiving

The pilgrims celebrated thanksgiving to show how grateful they were to the Wampanoag, who helped them survive their second winter by teaching them to grow crops. Unfortunately, on the Pilgrims' first winter, half of them died of starvation. There were about 90 Wampanoag men at the celebration.

FoodAt the original thanksgiving, food that was eaten was wildfowl, such as duck or geese, and crops, such as corn. The feast lasted three days, and the wampanoag and the Pilgrims were entertained with military displays.
