Thankful for Turkey

November 19, 2014

Did you know that Benjamin Franklin preferred the turkey as the national bird of the United States? Here are his thoughts from a letter to his daughter in 1784:

For in Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America… He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.”
