(Before It's News)

The pilgrims, led by Governor William Bradford, and the Wampanoags, led by chief Massasoit, developed a warm relationship. In November 1621, after the successful corn harvest, they celebrated with a feast now remembered as “America’s First Thanksgiving.”

Thanksgiving has been celebrated annually since then, and in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln made it a national holiday.
