I have noted on past Thanksgiving that actually the first Thanksgiving was in Virginia, not Massachusetts
Also in that vein, we can note that according to the National Historical Geographic Information System, Massachusetts wasn't even able to produce a full Thanksgiving meal for every resident in 1900 (Northern Virginia was, although the part of Virginia where the first Thanksgiving was held was not either)! Thankfully, the propensity to truck, barter, and exchange can solve this.
