9. True or false? It is unlikely that turkey was eaten on the first Thanksgiving.
 
Great Divide gets one point for the correct answer
SPLiTiMage gets one point for guessing Spam
 
The colonists had hunted wild turkeys during the autumn of 1621 and since turkey is a uniquely American (and scrumptious) bird, it gained traction as the Thanksgiving meal of choice for Americans after Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863. The publication of A Christmas Carol in 1843 may have helped force along the turkey’s cause as a holiday delicacy when Scrooge magnanimously sends the Cratchit family a Christmas turkey.
