I'll use questions from American History and if I can find some actual thanksgiving questions I'll include them but you never know what kind of strange trivia I may come up with.

I think I will dedicate this thanksgiving American history trivia quiz to the pilgrims who originally came over to the colonies to escape religious persecution and began building this great country of ours.
