    Thanksgiving started back in the day of the Pilgrims...right? In this talk, we'll cover the whole history of the most American holiday, from what really happened in Plymouth, to the rush of nostalgia that made Thanksgiving a national holiday in the 19th century. We'll check out how immigrants and suburban housing developments further changed the holiday in the 20th century. And in every time period, we'll look at menus from Thanksgivings past, from the original food festival, to the multi-meat feasts before the Civil War, to the stories behind iconic dishes of the modern era. You'll find out why it can't be thanksgiving with a pumpkin AND a chicken pie, and which Thanksgiving side dish is the most recent addition to the holiday canon.
