‘Mayhem at the Macy’s Parade’ and more Thanksgiving history

The pilgrims had eel for Thanksgiving dinner?

From the early days of Thanksgiving to football’s early beginnings on Thanksgiving to mayhem at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, historian Eleanor Schrader takes virtual guests of her “Thanksgiving Traditions and Mayhem at the Macy’s Parade” lecture on a “wild turkey ride through the history of Thanksgiving.”

Sweet potatoes as aphrodisiacs?

For $8, you can learn so much about Thanksgiving! And if you can’t make the live one-hour lecture, you can request a link to watch later.
