Jamestown’s 400th feted

January 11, 2020 | gzfrmzwx | No Comments

first_imgJAMESTOWN, Va. – A group of modern-day John Smiths rowed away Saturday in a small, open boat from the site of the first permanent English settlement in America, which Smith helped found 400 years ago this weekend. The replica of a boat like one Smith used to explore the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries shoved off as the commemoration of Jamestown’s anniversary entered a second day filled with concerts, cultural and artistic demonstrations, and military drills. President Bush is scheduled to speak today, the closing day of the festivities and the actual anniversary of the settlers’ arrival at this swampy island on the James River on May 13, 1607. The boat’s 121-day voyage over 1,500 miles will retrace much of Smith’s journey and inaugurate the Capt. John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail, the country’s first national historic water trail. “There they go,” someone shouted as six crew members began rowing away from the island while Bystrom stood in the stern. The boat will stop at more than 20 spots in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Washington before returning to Jamestown on Sept. 8. The crew will attempt to complete the entire trip entirely by oar and sail. Smith’s trip in 1608 yielded a comprehensive map that guided English settlers for nearly a century. Smith observed the bay’s ecosystem along the way, and the new national trail will do the same with a system of “smart” buoys that will collect information about water and atmospheric conditions and transmit them wirelessly. Smith’s crew ran low on food and water two days into their trip and turned to the native Indians for help. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “This is all just kind of overwhelming,” the captain, Ian Bystrom, said before the boat left. “I’m used to just sailing boats and teaching kids, and the next thing you know we’re here on the 400th anniversary.” The boat departed from Historic Jamestowne, where the colonists built a triangular fort. Archaeologists found the fort’s remains, long thought to have been washed away, in the mid-1990s. Since then, they’ve unearthed more than 1 million artifacts. Saturday, dozens of visitors ringed the fort site to watch archaeologists sift through the soil and show off some of their recent finds, including a sword that was among armor and weapons buried in a well that became a trash pit. Several hundred cheering people lined the shore of the river as Bystrom, followed by his crew of 11, slowly stepped onto large rocks at the water’s edge and into the 28-foot boat, called a shallop. last_img read more
