However instead of landing in Virginia they landed in New England and because their voyage was delayed it was already December. So half of them died. However the other half ran into Squanto an Indian who because he had been enslaved and taken to England he actually spoke perfect English. He taught them how to plant corn and to hunt and fish in their new environment. Their ancestors payed back Squanto by killing his ancestors and taking away their lands. Virginia didn't have these problems because they imported thousands of slaves to do their backbreaking labor. this went on for 250 years until the end of slavery. Then saying that this was the land of opportunity immigrants from all over the globe came to do all of the menial jobs and chase the "American Dream". So yeah Happy Thanksgiving.
