Dakota Midday: The First Official Thanksgiving

Nov 23, 2016

The First Official Thanksgiving tells the story of how a group of settlers celebrated Thanksgiving when they landed at Berkeley Plantation in Virginia, December 4, 1619 - over a year before the Pilgrims settled at Plymouth. "The documentary is about the little known story of America's first English Thanksgiving," says Graham Woodlief, President of the Virginia Thanksgiving Festival. Award-winning WCVE PBS Producer and Director Paul Roberts uses the film to tell a local story with local people. The First Official Thanksgiving airs Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. CT, on SDPB-TV.
