Thanksgiving — a bit of a corrective history telling and turkey adaptation

Corrective History

The NYTimes posted a bit of Turkey Day corrective history: “Most Everything You Learned About Thanksgiving Is Wrong” By MAYA SALAM

“The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth,” from 1914, by Jennie Augusta Brownscombe borrowed from NYTimes

Adaptive Turkeys

The Trump pardoned two turkeys yesterday at the White House. But, no surprise for us here in Columbia County, wild turkeys are doing just fine. Once again the NYTimes, ever on spot for trending issues, has an article about the surge in this population, “The Turkeys Not on Your Plate: They’re Out Back, Climbing the Roof” By KIRK JOHNSON. We had already heard reports from our old hometown Cambridge of wild turkeys strutting about.
