Captain John Smith

In 1602 he was captured and enslaved by Turk. In 1606 Smith became involved with the Virginia Company of London's plan to colonize Virginia for profit; it had been granted by King James. During the voyage, Smith was charged with mutiny, and Captain Christopher Newport (in charge of the three ships) had planned to execute him. He was one of the founders of the Jamestown, Virginia, settlement. Smith also led expeditions exploring Chesapeake Bay and the New England coast. Smith was also one of 105 settlers who sailed from England on December 19, 1606, and landed in Virginia on April 26, 1607. The trail will provide new opportunities for education, recreation, and heritage tourism on and around the Chesapeake Bay. Ultimately, by providing more opportunities for people to interact with the Chesapeake's diverse histories, cultures, and ecosystems, the trail will help facilitate protection of these resources and generate stronger stewardship of this national treasure.

He was born in Lincolnshire, New England 1580 and he died on June 21 1631.
