  3. New Light On Virginia's First Documented Africans

    September 9, 2019, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    Join historian Martha W. McCartney as she shares her recent discoveries about the Africans brought to Point Comfort in August of 1619. Through newly examined documents preserved in the United Kingdom’s National Archives, more details are now known about this pivotal event in American history. We now know how many Africans were aboard the Treasurer and how many of them were put ashore in Virginia. Previously some scholars had argued that the Africans aboard the Treasurer did not come ashore in Virginia until February 1620. This interpretation had the ship sailing to Bermuda before anyone on board could disembark, then returning several months later with Africans (including Angelo) aboard. However, the documents themselves support the 1619 date.
