On Thanksgiving Day
Americans thank Almighty God for their nation and their preservation. But is it right that, by tradition, the Pilgrim Fathers are always remembered and honoured on this day? No, say the Virginians. It can now be proved that a little band of adventurers from Gloucestershire held the first official Thanksgiving Service on American soil in Virginia in 1619. Gwyn Richards reports on an extraordinary detective story involving long-lost papers and a retired English parson.
