The Virginia Encyclopedia Remembers John Smith

Three days ago was the 404th anniversary of John Smith’s return to Jamestown from his unplanned and enforced visit to Werowocomoco, and his experience with Powhatan and (as he much later notoriously recounted) Pocahontas.

Brendon Wolfe offers some pithy observations and reminders about Smith and Jamestown’s earliest times in his postings on the Encyclopedia ofVirginia’s blog, which is one of the Virginia Foundation for Humanities’ projects.

This is a link that is well worth following.
