Cranberry bogs

Not many people know where cranberries come from. Personally I only had a vauge image of cranberries before I did my report on wetlands last year. Cranberries are native to the united states, and were used by the native peoples on the east coast. When the pilgrims arrived, they started using the cranberries. Cranberries are a traditional part of the Thanksgiving meal, probably because they are a traditional American food. Most of the traditional food we eat at thanksgiving are traditional American foods. Corn, potatoes, Turkey and pumpkins all came from the americas.
