Another fact that is not taught is where the Mayflower landed was all but devoid of any Indian population. Apparently, disease had wiped them out, except a few survivors, in the year preceding the White man's arrival. While the remaining Indians were not instrumental to the White man's survival during that first year by providing seed and other food as we are taught to believe (the First Thanksgiving story), the cached food that the deceased Indians had stored did make it possible for them to survive.
