The First Thanksgiving: What Really Happened

AUTHOR'S NOTE:

This video is meant to give a non-bias account of the events which unfolded in the years leading up to the First Thanksgiving, and the several years following the feast (roughly 1614-1622). I apologize for any pronunciation errors with Native American names; I have a deep respect for the native peoples of America, but I am ignorant on speaking their languages. I hope I have not offended anyone!

To keep the video below 7 minutes, many details were negated, so everything inside my video is what I consider essential to receiving a well-rounded view and understanding of this very interesting event. For instance, we still don't know what the epidemic of the Great Dying of 1616-1619 was, despite numerous theories. Squanto died in 1622, never admitting any involvement in a plot to overthrow Massasoit. The events that happened after 1622 could fill several more videos!

There is no political agenda behind this video. I am a student of history with and I have tried to give an account of the first Thanksgiving that is as close as we can possibly get to the truth.
