I have previously summarized the history of the Pilgrims who landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620 and set up camp at an abandoned Indian site known as Pawtuxet. But these Puritans were not the first settlers. In 1607, for business purposes, Jamestown was settled. In 1619, slaves arrived at Jamestown. In contrast, the Pilgrims never used slaves and never killed any Native American Indians.
This is why Abraham Lincoln made the Pilgrims the focus of the founding myth, instead of the Jamestown slave-owners, and created the Thanksgiving holiday in 1863. Therefore, Thanksgiving should be the holiest holiday for the Woke Religious, if the woke movement truly cared about racism. But they do not. The woke movement is just an excuse used by the communists to divide the nation. This is why the far-left are trying to smear the holiday as a time when the bad white man slaughtered Indians (along with Columbus Day).
The fact is that Lincoln and the Pilgrims were the original woke. Any college professor or activist on MSNBC claiming otherwise are propagandists.
November 25, 2021- A smart guy who read my 2016 historical summary of the Pilgrims noticed that this is the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving. It is astonishing that the entire world of media failed to cover this.
Do a Google search. You will find nothing. It is a total media blackout barbecue it shatters the narrative that America was founded by slave owners and Indian killers. The Puritan Pilgrims were as wholesome as it gets. The entire city of Boston was founded by the Pilgrims.
