Some of the differences between the first Thanksgiving and the present-day Thanksgiving would be that the Pilgrims would have hunted wild turkey. The bird would need to be prepared to cook. They would have also harvested any food that had been grown, and that food would also be prepared. The first Thanksgiving was held outdoors.
