  2. Pocahontas and Sacagawea - Interwoven Legacies in American History

    July 1, 2019, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    So many myths surround Pocahontas and Sacagawea that the fascinating true stories are often obscured. Mysteries about their lives remain even today. For instance, did Pocahontas really save John Smith’s life? Did Sacagawea die young or live a long life? Join Cyndi Spindell Berck, author of "Pocahontas and Sacagawea - Interwoven Legacies in American History" as she explores these questions, and other myths in this fascinating talk to bring the legacies of these famous women and their peoples up to the present. Berck weaves the stories of these two Native American heroines with those of their friends, kin, and contemporaries, tracing a slice of American migration from the first permanent English settlement in Jamestown, across the Appalachian Mountains, through the land of the Cherokees, to St. Louis, up the Missouri River, and finally to the Pacific.
