9780738501024: Jamestown Exposition Volume I

In 1907, Norfolk hosted the Jamestown Exposition, a celebration of America’s first permanent settlement on April 26, 1607, and an event that marked America’s ascension as a world power, in both military might and cultural influence. This exposition came at a time in American history when naval reviews, grandiose celebrations, world’s fairs, and international expositions were at their zenith of public popularity. These were the days when American imperialism reigned and expositions were an expression of patriotic fervor as never before seen in this country. In Jamestown Exposition: American Imperialism on Parade Volume I,
readers will experience this historic event from its early planning and construction, meeting the men responsible for its coordination and success, to the pomp and circumstance of the different exhibits of participating companies, states, and foreign powers. The true-life story of Pocahontas, or Matoaka; the Battle of the Merrimack and Monitor, the exposition’s most popular exhibit; and the colorful review of the different world navies, such as the Japanese and British fleets, are just a few examples of the fascinating stories touched upon in this first volume.

About the Author:

Hampton Roads historian and prolific author Amy Waters Yarsinske has extensively researched the subject and has compiled an extraordinary visual history that reveals the wonder and grandeur of this event. Like her other titles, such as Virginia Beach, Ocean View, Winter Comes to Norfolk, Summer on the Southside, and Norfolk’s Church Street, Jamestown Exposition: American Imperialism on Parade Volume I blends beautiful and vivid images with thorough and eloquent text, allowing the reader to explore the exposition firsthand. Released with an accompanying second volume, this collection will certainly educate and entertain, reminding all readers, both young and old, of Norfolk’s historic place in our country’s growing global identity.
