History of Thanksgiving day
In 1620, a small ship called the Mayflower left Plymouth, England, carrying over 100 passengers. After a treacherous and struggle crossing that lasted 66 days, they dropped anchor near the tip of Cape Cod, far north of their intended destination at the mouth of the Hudson River. One month later, the Mayflower crossed the Massachusetts Bay, where the Pilgrims, as they are now commonly known, began the work of establishing a village at Plymouth.
In 1621, the Plymouth colonists along with Wampanoag Indians joined and organised an autumn harvest feast that is known today as one the first Thanksgiving celebrations of all time.
From 1621 and 1863 or for more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by colonies individually. It was in 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, when The President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.
Thanksgiving day is celebrated every year in US in the month on 4th (Fourth) November.
