Hobo Nickel Part 2

Coins | user_4542

Now that I found out more about Hobo Nickels, i will give some info. Hobo nickels are just regular nickels with different engravings on them. Different people had engravings. The hobos would keep one nickel with them because, in the Depression era, one nickel could get you a nights lodging. A hobo could be arrested for vagrancy if he was unable to produce the payment for a nights lodging. This, in turn, could set them to 90 days hard labor.

The First Thanksgiving

| user_4542

The year was 1620, after months of sailing on rough seas, the puritans,also known as the pilgrims,finally landed. When the got off, they met strange men who spoke their language. the pilgrims knew nothing about the land in the new world. The natives began showing the white men how to grow crops and other things. the natives also helped the white men build their houses out of logs. The Pilgrims and the natives gathered together, made a meal, and thanked God for their safety,new friends,and their provisions. This is the story of the first thanksgiving. If you have a problem with me saying the word God, I'm sorry but I am a Christian and I believe god should be the one that is thanked for our provisions. Please leave a comment below!
