    Before the Pilgrims landed, Squanto was _fucking kidnapped_ (along with many other men) and shipped off to be a slave in Europe. This unwittingly saved his life, as an epidemic wiped out the entire rest of his tribe. Lucky for him, the church found out about this. Christian churches historically opposed all forms of slavery under the rationale that "all men are equal according to God", and loved to "tame savages" to show off the amazingness of God or whatever. So, they took Squanto, gave him his freedom, and educated him - including teaching him English. It is not certain how Squanto returned to the Americas - only that he did. When he found his tribe was extinct, he successfully integrated into another tribe instead. The first indigenous person to speak to the Pilgrims was Samoset, a subchief of a tribe in what is now Maine. He boldly walked alone into the Pilgrim's settlement (which alarmed them) and asked them for beer in English (which calmed them). Samoset knew a bit of English from earlier English fishermen, but knew that Squanto was much more fluent. So, he went and got him. Squanto then resigned himself to acting as a llaison between the Pilgrims and the indigenous tribes. Since many European settlers not only kidnapped indigenous people but also murdered them for no good reason, many tribes were defensively hostile and Squanto was vital to diplomacy. Thus, Squanto played a key role in setting up what is now termed "the first Thanksgiving". As a proper and true American occasion, the first Thanksgiving included the reckless firing of guns.

    The Jonestown residents didn't even drink Kool-Aid. It was a less expensive off-brand.

    A couple things Jon left out: -The reason Plymouth Rock is so small is because people kept taking pieces of it in the nineteenth century when we didn't know what historical sites were. -Despite the reputation people give the Pilgrims as one of America's founding groups who embodied everything we stand for, they were communists. Anything they made or grew was placed in a communal fund for all to use. -The Mayflower was originally meant as a cargo ship and was in no way meant to carry passengers. That was probably the source of some of the problems the Pilgrims faced on their journey.
