What did people eat at the first Thanksgiving? No turkey on menu


Thanksgiving holiday is based on the pilgrims and the Wampanoag Native American tribe.

The feasts celebrate the first successful harvest of the colonists in the New World.

At present, Thanksgiving appears on the fourth Thursday of November, early autumn and close to harvest.

The first Thanksgiving was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in November 1621.

The original Thanksgiving meal included freshly killed deer, assorted wildfowl and veggies.

The colonist mostly had fish, eel, lobster and mussels at their feast.

Vegetarians, on the other hand, preferred native crops like peas, beans, squash and flit corn.
