One Week till Thanksgiving

The first Thanksgiving by an unknown artist. What a difference a year can make as you will see from the next pictures. I do celebrate the pilgrims resolve and bravery. It could not have been easy that very first winter.

This is Edward Percy Moran's view of The Landing at Plymouth Rock. I love how they are all different yet similar.

An antique postcard celebrating the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock. It looks so cold and unfriendly. I wonder how they felt after that long journey. They must have been so brave.

The Landing at Plymouth Rock by Henry Bacon. The young woman is suppose to be Mary Chilton the first person to set foot in the New World she later married John Winslow.
