Must Read

Puritan Pilgrims in black, wearing high-topped buckle caps and holding blunderbusses, greet a small group of invited Native American guests. Unfortunately, these fantastical depictions are far from the reality of Thanksgiving in the 1600s in both Jamestown, Virginia, and Plymouth Colony.

The capacity to study and digest the real journals, records and archeological data left behind by those brave pioneers allows us to construct a more historically accurate and vivid picture of what things might have looked like in this age of information.
