International Naval Review and the Founding of Jamestown
In 1957, Hampton Roads hosted America’s third International Naval Review, held in conjunction with the 350th anniversary of the founding of the Jamestown colony. The U.S. State Department invited member-nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO, as well as countries considered to have special interest in the founding of Jamestown, to send their ships for the review. About 80 U.S. warships were joined by 30 ships from 17 other countries that attended the review. On June 12, 1957, Secretary of Defense Charles E. Wilson inspected the double line of ships from the guided missile cruiser U.S.S. Canberra.
 
Hampton Roads is the natural channel and harbor formed where the Nansemond, James, and Elizabeth rivers meet in Virginia. These three rivers flow through Hampton Roads and into the Chesapeake Bay. Newport News and Hampton lie on the northern shore of the channel, while Norfolk and Portsmouth are located on the southern shore.
