Yes you hear much about the proto-Yankee Pilgrims having the first Thanksgiving. But of course, the first American Thanksgivingwas in the South, first at Roanoke then in Jamestown. The Pilgrims were, in reality, quite late to the scene. So forget dour Pilgrims up in Plymouth this Thanksgiving, instead think about Cavaliers in Virginia.

Happy Thanksgiving.
