We Gather Together - Creating an American Thanksgiving with Denise Kiernan
"So denise. I want to start by asking you to cover the early history of thanksgiving were all taught. From a very early age that the pilgrims landed in plymouth and shared a feast with the native americans living in the area. How close is that accurate. What's so interesting about thanksgiving as we celebrated versus thanksgiving as it has been on this planet for much longer. I'm always fascinated about how traditions and practices evolved the concept of gratitude and giving thanks has been around basically as long as humans have walked the earth. The word thanksgiving and even the practice of thanksgiving has been around for centuries before even conception of the united states of america. Yes the pilgrim's did land at plymouth. Yes the pilgrim's did have a meal with the woman. Og indians was. That proclaimed a thanksgiving now. When thanksgiving became a federal holiday in the united states of america was that event singled out as the reason for establishing that holiday. Now i want to be clear. I am not putting anything out there. That other people haven't said for a while and what's really interesting. I think is that every year. You'll see these. Hey here's the real. This part of thanksgiving and i think part of the reason. Is we tell these stories. We tell this. Essentially two kids in school and then later on when they get into high school or college or whatever we don't necessarily re contextualised and give them the full story so every year it's almost necessary that we keep trotting these things out and contextualisation of history is so important to really kind of look at everything that went into a particular event and thanksgiving again. Like i said you know. I am not the first person to come out. And say yeah. That's not exactly how it happened. But what i'm interested in. And what was one of the linchpins at making me want to do. The book we gather together was the ageless. Timeless concept gratitude view stevens. I'm and author here in madison wisconsin. And i'm thankful for men. Women working press in use of the people. The you don't have a great thanksgiving. There is an alternate true factual story about thanksgiving and gratitude and harvest festivals. And all of those things. And how. The actual holiday came to be in america and evolve and erica so i thought was an alternate entry and wouldn't that be fun and i'm interested. How thanksgiving celebrations changed in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. So a lot of what thanksgiving is rule out of things like harvest festivals. Which again go way. Way back thanksgiving's were often religious practices in various parts of the world. You would set aside a day sometimes for fasting and humiliation as they would say to give thanks for could be particular event. When i was working on we gather together. I came across some really interesting articles including some archives from the atoms stanley. john adams. John quincy adams. Abigail adams and john adams writes in his diary thanksgiving for the repeal of the stamp act. So like that was something. You would have a thanksgiving for declare thanksgiving for thanksgiving's for various wins in battle or days of general thanksgiving or like. I said fasting and humiliation so those sorts of advance existed outside of north america. What we now consider the continental united states they existing europe and those traditions were obviously brought over when people came over but the concept of having days set aside for saying thank. You is something that goes back a very very long time. Tell us about. Sarah josefa so sarah of a hail was so compelling to me because she was a young woman born in the early nineteenth century actually of the eighteenth century. She had no formal schooling but her parents instilled in her a deep deep love of reading and learning and she was obsessed with the written word. She married a man who shared her love of all these things. They used to have study hour together in the evenings. She lost him fairly early on in their marriage and so she was a widowed mother of five children and because of her desire to write ended up becoming one of the most influential editors in the nineteenth century. She edited to popular women's magazines. The american ladies magazine and then go. Jeez ladies magazine which was one of the most popular magazines in the nineteenth century. And just to be able to do that to me whether thing but what really moved me about her was that she had all of these things that she needed not wanted but like needed to do for herself and her children but she still found time to raise money for people who have less than she did and to bring people's attention to causes she thought worthy and her ten city was just. I mean seriously. I was interviewing her thinking good. What have i been doing with my time. You know how i feel like. I'm talking to her. You know when. I am interviewing her. I'm looking at what she wrote. I'm looking at what she was quoted as saying. I'm looking at the book she put out. I'm looking at the end. Policies that she curated

"Choir. But in London does he feel tension with her actual culture? I mean, she's an English London. Yes. Stay at home. Yeah. He doesn't really want London to exist. And she she's you know, she wants to get back in. I actually think it's less about the she's a social creature. I think that the tension there between them is less about her desire to socialize and more about her kind of stunts that he is wasting his opportunity. So I played that she's corresponding with her mother-in-law advocate, and I emphasize Abigail again. And again, I can't emphasize enough without Abigail. There is no record of the constitutional conventions. You understand Abigail Adams was John Adams is amazing dominating partner throughout their life. Her genius is part of the story of the success of the revolutionary war. So anybody who is dealing with Abigail Adams was coming up against the ferocious temperament and at this point. It looks like Abigail Adams has melted. And decided that Louisa is a good person. Here's the quote, your letters are a treat from which I derive. Pleasure on a Lloyd. That's a heck of a confession from a puritanical matron that is true pleasure unemployed. So a Louisa has conquered her mother-in-law in healing in London. Now, there's there's social there's social unrest as well. You talk about the house little Boston house being robbed a couple of times and the garden not being safe and their laws and what I read a middle March sex with you wanna get there.

"Go ahead. The way that I was taught about Abigail Adams, which is largely through like, PBS documentaries. Right. Is that in the story of the found a loves tours, which of course is? The story of our founding is like we revere the disruptive and chaotic rage of our founding fathers who you know, NB were like white men right on Ben Franklin. Right. But in the in this storytelling that there's always this one line for my Abigail Adams against put on the museum, walls, or UBS documentaries. Which is remember the ladies she writes to her husband, John, right? Remember, remember, the ladies as you make this right? That was the big feminist statement. But if you actually go back, and you read Abigail Adams letter that same letter she uses the same language of revolution. That the founders were using she says remember all men would be tyrants, if they could write right hiri-. It's the tarantula will rule of Britain that the founders are rebelling against and then she says, basically if you don't include women right in your vision for this new country, basically purported to be built on liberty and inequality and representation we are determined to foment a rebellion. She basically in those letters is she she. Threatens a revolution. That part those angry parts where she's using the language of revolution around women's rights in the seventeen seventies. We're never taught that part. We get Adams who's furious to the point of threatening rebellion, and and using the language of of torrential rule with regard to gender relations. Right. We're not told that we're not told in that same era help Nate. She's the wise helped me, right? And we never I was never told. I didn't know the story of Mumbai who is an enslaved woman in Massachusetts working in the home of one of the revolutionary politicians. And she here's the language of revolution. A an and applies it to her own condition where she is badly physically abused within the home in which she is in slaved, Massachusetts applies for her freedom wins her freedom and her case becomes the basis for the abolition of slavery in Massachusetts in seventeen eighty three. So there's an example of a woman whose anger borrowing from the revolutionary rhetoric her home right leads to the change of a state law that abolishes slavery in that state. But. Are we ever taught the story of Mumbai who's later known as Elizabeth Freeman. No, we are never taught the history of women's anger as part of what changes the laws. Right. So we're we now you have the all these varies, and there's there's anger washing across Twitter and social media. There's fake anger rushing across it. There's the metoo movement there's all kinds of things around gender inequality and racial inequality going on there's a there's a president who creates anger everywhere, and and who has built his own power on anger, the punitive anger of those who have historically felt that they had a grip on power that has been challenged by the right by the less powerful whose anger is. And there's you know, so many writers. Now, I always say they kiss up kick down like to stop the anger from coming up, right because the anger from the power and his jobs out mops, and it's the same thing. Well, this is so there's a pattern. This. You know, what I was referring to before is when the less powerful challenge, the ascension or further a cruel of power. This is the Cavanaugh thing was a perfect example of his right? In fact, the thing that was being threatened was that Brad Kavanagh might not be appointed to the most powerful. You know, he wasn't even at risk of losing his job as right as a judge. He wasn't at risk of incarceration, losing his liberty. Nothing criminal. The question was would he get this massive promotion where he's going to have the power to determine the rights ability to vote and control your body's for millions.
