I learned a lot in the videos I watched. I learned the winters were harsh. They hardly had enough warmth to survive the winter. The reason the winters were so harsh is they didn't have the knowledge to fight the new diseases that spread so quickly is they didn't have the right medicine to vaccinate.
I also learned they had a plentiful source of ducks in the area the settled. Duck was the main course of their Thanksgiving. That did not mean that they didn't have turkey it was wild turckey although. The normal cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes were not around at this time. They had built 7 houses. They also had built a store house. They still had a hard time getting food.
