Take a Thursday in November; give a nod to the Pilgrims and Indians; roast a giant turkey and open a can of cranberry sauce; serve with a generous helping of football and finish with pumpkin pie. Most Americans engaging in this annual ritual assume that they are replicating an event that occurred in 1621 near Plymouth Rock. But we'll look at Thanksgiving's more complex history, recalling the nineteenth century writers who recast the event in a nostalgic glow, considering why many Native Americans renounce the holiday, and evaluating the real menu on that historic day.
