The meaning of Thanksgiving

The story of Thanksgiving
Long ago, people called Pilgrims left their home in England and came across the ocean to America in a boat called the Mayflower. They built their own houses, planted seeds they had brought with them, and made friends with the Indians, who were already living in America. The Indians taught them how to plant corn and hunt and fish for animals that they could eat. In the fall, when the corn was ready, the Pilgrims picked it. The Indian friends they made wanted some corn and the Pilgrims would not give them any. Jealousy grew and the Indians stole some corn and the Pilgrims killed many Indians. Many many moons later the Indians built casinos for the Pilgrims to lose all there money in and thou they did not have corn the Indians gained much green from the Pilgrim. That is the story of Thanksgiving.
