There was a Thanksgiving tie-in to the ceremony in London attended by Queen Elizabeth II. She attended the formal reburial of a chief of Connecticut's Mohegan Indians who had died while on a mission to the court of George II in 1735 seeking to have his nation's lands restored.

The monarch may not have restored lands but his descendent at least granted free publicity for the tribe's Mohegan Sun casino. "Times have improved," Phillips reflected.
