The story of Thanksgiving is about the way English people came to America looking for freedom of religion.

It follows like this:

Long time ago, in 1620, English people came to America. They were living in a country called England, but they did not agree with the King in religious matters. They decided to go to live somewhere where they could follow their religion with no difficulties. They were known as the PILGRIMS.

They built a boat called the MAYFLOWER. The boat held 102 Pilgrims and they crossed the ocean for 66 days until they finally arrived to the New World. When they arrived they found Indians. Pilgrims did not know how to prepare the land for cultivating vegetables and did not know how to hunt for animals to eat. All they know was how to build houses and make towns. 

Indians were very friendly to them and taught the Pilgrims how to prepare the land to cultivate and how to hunt. In exchange, Pilgrims taught Indians how to build houses.

Pilgrims could survive thanks to the help of the Indians living there. Pilgrims built a town called PLYMOUTH. They wanted to thank the Indians for being so generous with them so they all celebrated with a FEAST. This day has been remembered by all Americans as the First Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is celebrated every third Thursday of November every year.

 

United States Independence

United States did not have this name before. It was known as America or the Thirteen Colonies. This began when English came to America years ago. In time English people populated America but they were still ruled by the King of England. The King of England was demanding many things from America. Americans did not agree with the demands and they thought they did not need a King to rule them. They had a very important reunion with representatives from all the populated area in America. In the meeteing they discussed they could be a different country without depending on England. They agreed, they had the resources so they decided to get heir INDEPENDENCE. They wrote a documentcalled DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE which was signed by all the important people attending to the meeting. The day when everybody signed the document and decided to be an independent country was the 4TH OF JULY. That is why Unites States of America celebrates its Independence Day every $th of July. Take a look at the attached file below.
