Are these stories myths, legends, fairy tales, or something else

Question description

MIN 200 words:

As we enter into the study of myths from around the world, I’d like you to think of historical American stories.  Examples could be the first Thanksgiving turkey dinner, George Washington chopping down a cherry tree, or Davy Crockett killing a bear at 3 years old.

Are these stories myths, legends, fairy tales, or something else? What, if anything, about these accounts is literally true? How do these accounts inform our conceptions of Thanksgiving, George Washington, Davy Crockett, or others you have thought of?
