Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

On December 20, 1606, the Discovery, Godspeed and Susan Constant left England for the unsettled wilderness of Virginia. Upon these three ships were 160 men and boys, of which 120 were to be the inhabitants of a colony. After a short respite in the West Indies, the small fleet arrived at the southernmost entrance to the Chesapeake Bay on 16 April 1607. This they naed Cape Henry in honour of the Prince of Wales, a strong suppporter of the colonial effort. A party of men was set ashore to look about, but these were immediately attacked by Indians and driven back to the ships.

Finding neither suitable nor hospitable sites, the ships turned west and sailed 60 miles inland to a small, marshy peninsula. The island, as it was save for a narrow strip connecting it with the mainland, had sufficient draught to allow the ships to be mooreeed alongside of the banks, tied to the trees. On 14 May, the English went ashore and immediately began to establish a colony. This they called Jamestown, in honour of the King.

Review:

"Gives the reader an eye witness account of the life of the brave soldiers who willingly gave their lives." -- Karen Shriver, Curator of Collections, Flowerdew Hundred Museum

"Interesting and well-researched. Tisdale's book fills a niche in early American history." -- Melissa Simpson, The Book Corner, Newport News Daily Press
