History of Thanksgiving Day
The Thanksgiving tradition as we know it here in the United States can be traced back to a well-recorded 1619 event in Virginia as well as a less documented 1621 celebration at Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts. Pilgrims and Puritans who emigrated from England in the 1620s and 1630s carried the tradition of Fasting and Days of Thanksgiving with them to New England.
In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the resolution brought forth by congress to declare Thanksgiving Day as an official federally recognized holiday.
