We don't know much about the first Thanksgiving feast, which history
places in the autumn of 1621. That year, the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag
Indians shared a celebration of the colony's first successful harvest.
We searched several period accounts of the menu and discovered
references to five deer, unspecified fowl, dried meat, eel, lobster,
squash, fruit and corn mush for 143 guests. No mention of turkey. But
there were no mentions of forks, either.
So how did turkey become the main event? It is a mystery. All we found
was Alexander Hamilton's famous 1790 proclamation that "No Citizen of
the United States should refrain from turkey on Thanksgiving Day." Amen.
