The Real Story Of Thanksgiving
The first actual proclaimed "Day of Thanksgiving" came in 1637 in a meeting between the Pequot Indians and English religious mercenaries. The Pequot were celebrating their annual Green Harvest Festival, which resembles modern-day Thanksgiving. On the eve of the festival, the English demanded that everyone comes out of their homes, puts their weapons on the ground, and surrenders by converting to Christianity.
Those who obliged with these terroristic demands were either shot dead or clubbed to death. Those who stayed inside their longhouses - including women and children - were burnt to death. In all, more than 700 Pequot men, women, and children were slaughtered that day.
The "victory" was celebrated by the Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony holding a feast and trumpeted this as a "Day of Thanksgiving." During the celebration, they cut off heads of Natives and put them on display publicly; including beheading the Wampanoag Chief and impaling his head on a pole in Plymouth which stayed on display for the next 24 years.
