Fiction based upon truth. In any story told there is some truth woven in the tale. I heard this story from an English teacher whom I met in South Korea a few years ago.

So, all of you out there intending on enjoying a turkey dinner, perhaps a reminder of who really to be thankful for back in 1621.
