History of Thanksgiving

In today's world Thanksgiving seems to have lost it's true meaning as to why we celebrate it. I feel that most of use sort of remember that it has something to do with the Pilgrims and the Native Americans, but past that I feel it is completely lost.

So, during this month I decided to take the time to research Thanksgiving and share what I have learned about this fantastic day.
