Additional Details:
Cape Henry, adjacent to Virginia Beach, stands a silent sentinel guarding the lower Chesapeake. Two lighthouses identify the spot, one dating from 1690 and which years ago cast its rays in calm and in storm, and the new one, recently erected, which serves as a greater guide to the mariner. Here the Jamestown settlers first disembarked, but were driven back by the Indians
