Jamestown Exposition Souvenir 1607-1907 This view shows the present condition of the landing place of our first forefathers, and the seat of the first civil and religious establishment on the shores of North America. Jamestown, a peninsula of land at the time of the landing on May 13, 1607, has since become an island and would, but for the protection afforded it by the United States Government, be gradually washed away by the James River, whose waters, as will be seen, have approached the very foundation of the precious and historical ruin of the old church. The town was burned during the Bacon's Rebellion in 1676, and it ceased to be the capitol in 1699 when the seat of government was removed to Williamsburg, Virginia. Since that time it has no particular importance, excepting from an historical standpoint.

Virginia cannot too much honor the memory of this lovely young woman, since to her more than once Virginia owed its existence. And so long as history records deeds dared and hardships endured by the first settlers of Jamestown, so long will Pocahontas be remembered as the guardian angel of the colony. Pocahontas, favorite daughter of the King, Powhatan, was born in 1587, christianized and baptized in 1612, and married in 1613. She died in 1616, and was buried in Gravesend, England, in the chancel of St. George's Church, leaving one chile, Thomas Rolfe, from whom many of the most distinguished families of Virginia have descended. She was variously styled "the little snow feather of Powhata," the "Nonparella of Virginia," the "king's dearest daughter," etc., etc., and bore three names, "Pocahontas" meaning bright stream between two hills. "Amonate" and "Matoax," meaning "snow feather." The last, her real name, was rarely uttered on account of the Indian superstition that knowledge of the real name gave their enemies power to cast spells upon them.

Description:
Marriage of Pocohontas to John Rolfe took place in Jamestown Church in April 1613. Two years thereafter she, with her husband, went to England, and it was while at the Court of King James she again met Capt. John Smith, who had left Virginia in 1609, and did not return. Upon seeing him she covered her face with her hands and did not speak a word, at length saying, "They did tell me always you were dead and Powhatan did send to find out the truth because your countrymen will lie much. You called Powhatan, Father, being in his land and a stranger, and now, for that reason, I will call you Father." On being told by Smith that as a king's daughter she must preserve her dignity, she indignantly answered, "You showed no fear to come into my father's country and to make him and all his people but me afraid, but you fear here in England for me to call you father. I tell you then I will, and you shall call me child."

English and Indians Meeting at Jamestown in 1607
Divided Back unused

Description:
No. 4. ENGLISH AND INDIANS MEETING AT JAMESTOWN IN 1607. Shortly after their arrival the colonists were visited by a number of Indians, who approached without fear, and seemed to show by their gestures that they wished to tell them of their friendly disposition. The Englishmen presented them with beads and pieces of tin, which were received with delight. The Indians paid them many visits after this, bringing with them presents of skins, game and other things, in exchange for which they were greatly pleased to receive the trifles mentioned. This early promise of friendship and peace was, however, soon rudely dispelled, and the constant and serious conflicts led to the loss of many lives. Had it not been for the strong hand of Capt. John Smith, that fell heavily upon them in swift and dire punishment whenever occasion arose, the settlement could not have existed in the face of the fierce antipathy that developed among the Indians

Description:
The main army of the Continental forces being engaged in the vicinity of New York, Cornwallis plundered Virginia during the summer of 1781, unopposed except by La Fayette, whose small and totally inadequate army could do but little in defense of the State. In August, Cornwallis moved his army to the York River, and believing it to be a strong position, encamped at Yorktown. La Fayette at once placed his army in front on the land side, and the French fleet coming up the river to a position near Yorktown, Cornwallis was entrapped. Washington marched his army 400 miles to join La Fayette, and on his arrival it became impossible for Cornwallis to escape, and after a siege of 19 days he surrendered, his army consisting of 7,251 officers and men, 840 seamen, 240 cannons and 24 standards, to George Washington, Commander-in-Chief, and the allied forces under Comte de Rochambeau and Comte Grasse

Title:
Jamestown in 1607
Divided Back unused

Description:
No. 7. JAMESTOWN IN 1607. The English on landing (card No. 3) pitched tents, but in the pleasant May weather soon found it more agreeable to lodge "under bows of trees" until the log cabins they at once proceeded to build were ready for occupancy. An "old rotten tent" was the first church in the American wilderness. The next step was to stretch an awning between the trunks of trees, to nail a bar between two of these to serve as a reading desk, and here "the religious and courageous divine, Mr. Hunt" read the service morning and evening, preached twice on Sunday, and celebrated the Holy Communion at intervals of three months. When Lord Delaware came in 1610 (card No. 8) he found at Jamestown a church 24 by 60 feet, the first permanent religious edifice erected by Englishmen in America, and the one in which Pocahontas was baptized and later married to John Rolfe. (Cards Nos. 9 and 10.) Subsequent suffering from malaria and the "burning fevers that destroyed them" would indicate that the location was most unsuitable and unwisely selected. (See cards No. 1 to 19.)

Colonists Leaving England For Jamestown
Title:
Colonists Leaving England For Jamestown
Divided Back unused

Description:
Landing of the Maidens at Jamestown. The early voyagers to far off Virginia were simply men adventuring to seek their fortune, which they hoped to acquire quickly and return to England. This was not the spirit that founds new commonwealths, and it became apparent that unless Virginia was looked upon as home with wife and children to brighten it, the enterprise would mis-carry. In 1619 ninety young women of unexceptionable character, who had volunteered for the purpose, arrived at Jamestown from England. Singular features of the arrangement were that the husband was to repay the cost of their outfit and passage in tobacco, 120 pounds, amounting to about $80, and a proclamation of the Governor that young women, who betrothed themselves to more than one lover at a time would be severely punished. Happy marriages followed the arrival, and the establishment of real homes proved the plan to be a great success.

Leading merchants of London organized a great trading company to make settlements in Virginia and in 1606 King James I. Granted a charter to the London Company for that purpose. They at once prepared to send out a colony, and on December 19th, 1606, 105 men listed as gentlemen, carpenters and laborers (but 12 were laborers), set sail down the Thames in the “Susan Constant” of 100 tons, the “Godspeed” of 40 tons and the “Discovery” of 20 tons, or as some authorities state, the “Sarah Constant,” “Goodspeed” and “Discovery,” in command of Admiral Christopher Newport. After a very long, tempestuous and eventful voyage they passed through the Virginia Capes late in April, 1607, touched at Cape Henry, Point Comfort, Hampton and other points, and finally landed and settled at Jamestown, May 13, 1607. (See cards Nos. 3, 4, 7 and 8.)

Description:
This view shows the present condition of the landing place of our first forefathers, and the seat of the first civil and religious establishment on the shores of North America. Jamestown, a peninsula of land at the time of landing on May 13, 1607, has since become an island and would, but for the protection afforded it y the United States Government, be gradually washed away by the James River, whose waters, as will be seen, have approached the very foundation of the precious and historical ruin of the old church. The town was burned during Bacon's rebellion in 1676, and it ceased to be the capital in 1699 when the seat of government was removed to Williamsburg, Virginia. Since that time it has been of no particular importance excepting from an historical stand point. (See Nos. 7, 16 and 17.)

Description:
The worthy captain having, thanks to Pocahontas, miraculously escaped death, as pictured and described on card No. 5, was required to remain with Powhatan to make “bells, beads and copper” for his tavorite child. It was a very curious fate for the hardy capaigner of many wars, to be buried in the virginia woods, the fashioner of toys for an Indian girl, and the soldier with his tanned face and sweeping mustache, shaping trinkets for the small slip of Virginia royalty, in her robe of feathers, white plumes and coral bracelets, presents an unusually interesting and attractive picture. Capt. Smith remained with powhatan for a year; they had sworn eternal friendship, and the King offered to adopt and give him a portion of his domain for a Dukedom, but in compliance with his repeatedly expressed desire to return to Jamestown, he was finally permitted to do so. (See cards 4, 5, 7 and 14.)

Title:
Pocahontas At The Court Of King James
Divided Back unused

Description:
The Arrival of Pocahontas, accompanied by her husband, caused a great sensation in London, and she was received with much distinction. She was treated as a daughter of a king, and the old historians say that it was a constant tradition of that time that the King of England was highly offended at john Rolfe for marrying a royal princess. She was presented at court by Lady Delaware, and was “graciously used” and made much of by the king and queen. The Bishop of London, who was delighted at her conversion to Christianity, gave a grand entertainment in her honor, one of great pomp, ceremony and splendor. She was the new world personified in the gracious form of a little beauty of twenty-one, and the curious eyes of the fine gentlemen and ladies of London, noticing that there was no trace of awkwardness or embarrassment in her demeanor, overwhelmed her with attention, and she suddenly became the fashion. The fine life of London, with its rich costumes, gilded coaches and high revelry was a curious contrast to the first years of Pocahontas in the forests of Virginia, but it did not affect in any way the simplicity of character of this remarkable young woman.

Gen Jackson, with his staff, had ridden forward in the dusk of evening to reconnoitre; on their return they were mistaken for the enemy, and a volley was poured into them, and the brave and great soldier, who had so often led them to victory, fell pierced by the men who would have given their lives for his.
