1868 Captain John Smith Biography EARLY POCAHONTAS Virginia Native American

“For in Virginia, a plaine Souldier that can use a Pick-axe and spade, is better than five Knights.”

– John Smith

Captain John Smith was a soldier and writer who is best known for his role in establishing the Virginia colony at Jamestown, England's first permanent colony in North America. At Jamestown, Smith served on the local council; explored and mapped the Chesapeake Bay; established a sometimes-contentious relationship with Powhatan, the paramount chief of Tsenacomoco; and was president of the colony from September 1609 to September 1610. He was unpopular among his fellow colonists, however, who forced his return to England in October 1610.

This 1868 edition of Hill’s book ‘Capt John Smith’ contains the famous story of Pocahontas, which was then made into a major motion picture by Walt Disney!
