How Many Days Did the First Thanksgiving Last?

Answer

The first Thanksgiving lasted for 3 days and the year of the first Thanksgiving was 1621. During the celebration, the English and the natives played ball games, danced, and sang songs with one another. After hearing gunshots and thinking that the English were preparing for war, the Native American leader, Massasoit, investigated, only to find that the English were hunting in preparation for their harvest celebration. The native leader sent his own men to hunt and return with food. The two sides enjoyed Thanksgiving together.
