What are the differences between the first Thanksgiving and now?
In the first thanksgiving, there was a goose instead of turkey.
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.
Plymouth Rock is a small town in Massachusetts where most people believe the first Thanksgiving transpired between the settlers and the Indians. The rock they may or may not have walked on when coming through the harbor now resides in a museum. There are now findings that the first Thanksgiving happened years earlier in St. Augustine.
