Maine’s First Ship, The Virginia

Reconstruction of The Virginia

While visiting Bath, Maine recently, I had the opportunity to see the volunteer effort dedicated to building  a reconstruction of the 1607 Virginia.  Thirteen years before the Pilgrims, Englishmen landed and established a colony identified in documents as Ft. St. George  on the Kennebec River. The colonists constructed the small ship but later abandoned the colony and returned to England. History shows that the Virginia returned and successfully reached its sister colony Jamestown.
I bet you did not know that.

About Anne Pflug

I presently live in Venice Florida but was born on the island of Malta. I have relatives there and visit quite often. I am in the process of writing a travelogue and memoir about my visits and memories of Malta. I would like to use my blog to show the many photos I have taken and the beautiful sights that I have seen in Malta.
