McKinley Presidential Library & Museum to Present Virtual Program: “The True Story of Thanksgiving”

The next virtual program presented by the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum will explore “The True Story of Thanksgiving” on November 18 at 6:00 PM. The program is $10 and preregistration on the Museum’s website at www.McKinleyMuseum.org is required. Presented by Executive Director Kim Kenney, this program will explore what the 1621 harvest celebration was really like.

Did they eat turkey and mashed potatoes? Who was there? How and when did Thanksgiving become a national holiday? What regional and ethnic traditions have influenced the traditional menu in the modern age?
