Burt Wolf: A Taste of Freedm

Our first nationwide Thanksgiving in the United States took place at
the end of the Revolutionary War when George Washington called for a
Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, November 26th, 1789. But it was only a
one-time event. Join Burt Wolf and discover why it took until 1941 for
Thanksgiving to be a federal holiday, how the bald eagle won out over
the turkey as our national bird, and what stuffing our founding
fathers preferred.
