Surely not. The cornucopia ("horn of plenty") is an ancient symbol of food and abundance, arising out of Greek mythology. It has become associated with the holiday we observe as Thanksgiving. But the Pilgrims didn't know they were having something called "Thanksgiving" at that first feast in 1621. They didn't say "This is the first Thanksgiving." It was just a big holiday feast of celebration. Commemoration came later.

The Wikipedia entry for Thanksgiving tells us that the first official Thanksgiving Proclamation made in America was issued by the Continental Congress in 1777. Later on, in 1789, it became a national holiday.
