It’s unfortunate that every single year, Thanksgiving becomes a time for people to peddle myths and lies about the origins of America. Today, on Thanksgiving, I thought it would be good to take a look at these claims and dispel some of the myths.
Specifically, I looked at the origins of the claim that Europeans killed off Native Americans with infected blankets, and looked at some of the other explanations of a declining population concluded by researchers over the years.
Let’s be thankful for the wonderful things our great country has been able to achieve, and everything we’ve been able to do together, as a collective American people.
Have a great Thanksgiving everybody!
