I tried checking for historical accuracy about “who” invented Thanksgiving in North America and it really seems to come down to semantics. One source took issue that Martin Frobisher ate salted meat, biscuits and peas and therefore it wasn’t truly a “harvest” but he and his crew were thankful. The fact is that Thanksgiving as a celebration of the season’s bountiful harvest had been going on in Europe for centuries before either Frobisher (see below) or the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth rock and partied with the local people.
Have a great Holiday!
