History is in the Eye of the Beholder
As we become a more global community and share information more freely, history is constantly being rewritten.
Several years ago, my family attended the First Thanksgiving Festival at Berkeley Plantation (Charles City, Virginia). It is a festival with vendors and demonstrations but seeing the reenactors in period garb, feeling the ground shake with cannon fire, the smell of freshly spent black powder on the air allowed us to step back in time.
Check out this article by the Washingtonian. This Thanksgiving tradition only lasted a few years since the Powhatan realized the settlers' intent to take more land, killing anyone who stood in the way. The take away from this story is be a good guest or your hosts may show you the door. Permanently.
