Discover why it took until 1941 to be a holiday and how the bald eagle became the national bird.
Long Description: 
Our first nationwide Thanksgiving in the United States took place at the end of the Revolutionary War when George Washington called for a Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, November 26th, 1789. But it was only a one-time event. Join Burt Wolf and discover why it took until 1941 for Thanksgiving to be a federal holiday, how the bald eagle won out over the turkey as our national bird, and what stuffing our founding fathers preferred.
