Turkey is a fixture at most Americans’ Thanksgiving tables, but where, exactly, did this tradition originate?
A definitive history is difficult to pin down, but many historians believe the bird didn’t enjoy a place at the original Thanksgiving feast between the Pilgrims and Native Americans back in 1621. While poultry of some sort may have been served, turkey was not mentioned in historicL accounts of the meal between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians. Venison, though, was on the menu along with other foods of the day.
The Oregonian noted that, while we can’t be sure of when the turkey came into the mix, there is one key figure who advocated for the bird to be served on Thanksgiving — Sarah Josepha Hale (1788-1879).
Not only did Hale, a well-known writer (she penned “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” among other works), urge families to adopt certain foods like turkey, but she was also the driving force behind pushing the U.S. government to adopt Thanksgiving as an official holiday.
In 1863, Abraham Lincoln obliged — and here we are today.
While celebrating The Holidays in Chicago this year, come see the wonderful sites the City has to offer on a Segway Holiday Lights Tour from Segway Experience of Chicago.
Remember, you can be too stuffed to Segway so watch your appetite.
I am a born and raised Chicagoan and never knew how much fun I was missing. I have never been on anything like the Segway's before so I was nervous but within seconds our tour guides Casey and Andrew had us feeling like pros. They gave us a very informative evening along with fun and laughter. I would do it again and again. read more unedited reviews here...
By some stroke of luck my friend and I were the only two people on the Tour. Our guide, Johnathon, was absolutely fantastic. He gave us the full tour even though there were only two of us. I am a lifelong Chicago resident and yet I still learned things and saw things I didn't know. Best seventy bucks I have spent in years!Perry Buckley
