America's Real First Thanksgiving
When most Americans think of the first Thanksgiving, they think of the Pilgrims and the Indians in New England in 1621. But 56 years before the Pilgrims celebrated, Spanish explorer Pedro Menendez arrived on the coast of Florida & founded the first North American city, St. Augustine.
On September 8, 1565, the Spanish and the native Timucua celebrated with a feast of Thanksgiving.
