  • Fact: The Pilgrims were a group of Puritans who landed at Plymouth Rock, in what is now Massachusetts, United States, in 1620. In 1621 Governor William Bradford of New England proclaimed a day of "thanksgiving" and prayer to celebrate the Pilgrims' first harvest in America.

    United States president Abraham Lincoln, following the precedent of a number of states, designated a national Thanksgiving Day in 1863.
