Special Presentation: History of Thanksgiving
Wednesday, November 21st at 7PM/6c

Turkey dinners, footballs and parades--these are the modern-day
trappings of the holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November
each year. But Thanksgiving is more than just a day of food and
festivity. This documentary traces the history of Thanksgiving, from
early festivals and rituals of thanks to the feasts Americans
celebrate today. The History of Thanksgiving explores different tales
of the Thanksgiving holiday, examining how and why the story of the
Pilgrims sharing bounty with Native Americans became the symbol of
Thanksgiving. Using primary sources, expert historians and authentic
reenactments, this program untangles some Thanksgiving myths and
recounts the story of how it became recognized as a federal holiday.
Students will find that this documentary gives them new historical
insights into this popular holiday, and an opportunity to discuss its
meaning and significance in our society today.
