									               The History of Thanksgiving
           By Nathan Parks and Anthony Resendez

    The history of Thanksgiving tells us why we celebrate

the holiday. In 1621 the Pilgrims sailed the Mayflower to

America. They landed at Cape Cod, Massachusetts. They

built homes and raised crops.      The harvest was very

successful. They were friends with the Indians.

    By the 10th century, many states were celebrating

Thanksgiving. Today we celebrate Thanksgiving on the

fourth   Thursday   of   November.       The      history   of

Thanksgiving helps us understand this holiday.
