John,
Thank you for posting this great reading of history. In the US we tend to teach history in pictures. We do not “connect the dots” to the causation of future events.
The above last sentence is the strength of your blog, you connect the dots.
Last week I began my winter research project to map out King Philips War battle sites. In the summer I will be visiting them. (Last winter I mapped out a few old dams and visited the early industrial parks in the Springfield Ma area.)
New England is steeped in history and yet the people here have no idea!
Happy Thanksgiving
Duane

Great write-up, learned a lot!

Here is an interesting historical fact, it wasn't the first Thanksgiving in the colonies.

On 4 Dec. 1619, Capt. John Woodlief, a member of the Virginia Company, arrived aboard the ship Margaret with 35 men to take charge of Berkeley Hundred. An experienced former Jamestown settler, he became Berkeley's first governor. He bore instructions that the day of his ship’s arrival “be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to almighty God.” Beginning in 1958, the Virginia First Thanksgiving Festival commemorated this directive as the first English Thanksgiving in North America with an annual reenactment at Berkeley Plantation.
