Comments: Man's Gotta Know His Limitations
"Robed Spanish priests and armor-clad explorers held Catholic Mass and shared a meal with tattooed, seashell-adorned Timucuans of Florida.
Floridians don’t want to upend a beloved Thanksgiving tradition, throw out the turkey and banish the Pilgrims. But strong evidence exists that America’s first formal prayers of gratitude for good fortune, followed by a feast of thanks, took place at St. Augustine in 1565 – 56 years earlier than the traditionally accepted first Thanksgiving at Plymouth Rock and more than 1,000 miles south of it."
Like just about everything else in New England, the "First Thanksgiving" is all lies.

Would that surprise anyone? It doesn't surprise me at all.
