Abstract Many American celebrate the fourth Thursday in November by watching football and eating a big meal with their family. This is the national holiday of Thanksgiving, a tradition linked to the Pilgrims and their early days in the New World. But pictures showing the Pilgrims sitting down for a feast with their Native American friends are only partly right. Stories about this day often make it sound much nicer that it was. So, what was the first Thanksgiving really like?
