“Making Peace on the James”

Out on the James Charles City VirginiaThis  is  a  boat  coming  to  a  ship  in  the  James  River  in  Charles  City,  Virginia.  It  is  at  this  location  where  the  First  Thanksgiving  took  place.

Many  associate  the  First  Thanksgiving  with  Plymouth,  Massachusetts,  and  it  is  there  that  most  Americans  associate  the  day.  However,  Plymouth  was  where  the  first  Thanksgiving  Feast  took  place.  The  actual  First  Thanksgiving  took  place  in  Virginia.  What  happened  in  Virginia?  It  was  where  knelt  down  on  one  knee  and  prayed  to  God  giving  God  ‘thanks’  for  a  safe  passage  across  the  ocean  to  the  new  world.
