Governor Phil Bryant | The 400th Anniversary of the First Thanksgiving Day — Celebrating our Sacred Traditions, Affirming Religious Faith, and the Blessings of Family and Freedom | A Special Edition in Partnership with America First Policy Institute’s Center for 1776
Governor Phil Bryant joins America’s Roundtable co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy with an inspiring message, as we celebrate Thanksgiving Day with family and friends and reflect on the 400th Anniversary of the First Thanksgiving Day in the autumn of 1621.
In light of the aggressive elements of the American Left making relentless attempts to eliminate or alter America’s annual feast of Thanksgiving, the discussion focuses on the historical facts surrounding the first Thanksgiving Day in 1621 and the significance of religious faith, sacred traditions and the spirit of thankfulness, giving and unity.
The extraordinary setting of 53 Pilgrims, the early settlers of Massachusetts, joined by 90 Native American warriors in a Thanksgiving feast that lasted for three days are brought to the forefront with the ties forged between the Pilgrims and the region’s most important Chief Massasoit of the Wampanoag tribe.
Why was this a defining moment in the American Founding, what was the sense of purpose presented by the Pilgrims that left an imprint on the national character? What did they see as their responsibilities in the New World?
Take a listen to the answers to these questions and much more in this special Thanksgiving Day edition in partnership with the America First Policy Institute’s Center for 1776.
Phil Bryant served as the 64th governor of Mississippi and currently serves on the leadership board of the International Leaders Summit and Jerusalem Leaders Summit as well as a Senior Advisor for the America First Policy’s Center for 1776.
