Another Facet In Viewing Jamestown

Apropos of our postings on Karen Kupperman’s Washington Post op-ed and that of Peter Mancall in Bloomberg offering another view of the First Thanksgiving, we overlooked Daniel Honan’s The First Thanksgiving: Reclaiming Jamestown From the Dustbin ofHistory. Honan offers yet another facet in viewing our American origins.

Honan observes how the ignorance of Jamestown heritage has been providing misguided political fodder to those who should know better. This is an excellent piece that helps open eyes to just how important Jamestown was. 

Daniel Honan is a contributor to Think Tank, an online blog at Big Think, a "digital "knowledge forum."
