Own the Jamestown Commemorative Set –
Honors America’s First Permanent English Settlement
This set of three masterfully engraved stamps is an important addition to your collection that will save you time and money. Jamestown was the first permanent English settlement in America and was founded on May 14, 1607. It was there that the first representative government of the American continent was established. The cultivation of tobacco was begun at Jamestown as well.
Stamps also honor John Smith and Pocahontas. Captain John Smith is the best known of the early settlers of Virginia. At the young age of 26, he began trying to colonize Jamestown. While on an expedition in Virginia, he and his men were attacked by Indians. Smith was tried and sentenced to die, but was supposedly saved by Pocahontas. While many of the events in Smith’s life have been debated, he’s credited with making an accurate map of the northeastern coast from Penobscot, Maine, to Cape Cod. And it was Smith who called the area “New England.”
