The following links are two articles which describe a very different version of history around the holiday of Thanksgiving. I first heard about this version a couple years ago on Free Talk Radio, a Libertarian-leaning, free-market radio show.
The articles below describe how Thanksgiving is really a celebration of free markets and private property over socialism, which had caused much famine and fraud throughout the colonies.
You most likely never heard about this if you went to public schools… I know I never did.
Read them for yourself and feel free to comment…
