Thanksgiving started a long time ago and is a time in America where everyone gives thanks for what they have.
Pilgrims are a group of people who came to America in search of religious freedom.
When the Pilgrims got to America they were dying of starvation.
They asked the native people, the Wampanog, for help.
The Wampanog taught the Pilgrims how to farm, hunt, and fish.
