Did you know Sarah Josepha Hale, author of “Mary Had a Little Lamb” led the crusade for a national day of thanks?
In the spirit of learning and sharing, here’s a video portfolio on the “History of Thanksgiving” produced by the History Channel. There are 17 videos in total (each only 3-4 minutes), covering everything from food to football and pilgrims to parades. Enjoy!
Some of my favorites are:
History of Thanksgiving
Pilgrims in America
Thanksgiving Becomes a Holiday
Thanksgiving Day Parade Tech
