Mohican Thanksgiving 1938

This was a memento from the 1938 Mohican Thanksgiving dinner.

LOUDONVILLE -- Happy Thanksgiving to all!

In 1938, the 182 men of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Co. 1570, encamped at Mohican Forest, celebrated Thanksgiving together in their barracks and mess hall.

The menu consisted of roasted turkey fresh from the forest, with a sage dressing, hearts of celery, mixed pickles, giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, candied yams, creamed cauliflower, buttered peas, cranberry sauce, bread, Parkerhouse rolls, butter, coffee, pumpkin pie, salted nuts, and finished off with a nice cigar.
