Tag It! Thanksgiving Edition

Thanksgiving rolls around once a year but at the National Archives you can tag our Thanksgiving related records every day.  Our sample set is a little heavy on the turkey,  so pass up dessert and tag a few records instead!  Here are some of my favorite images:

Looks like this turkey received his pardon a bit too late.
