Saving the Chesapeake Map
 
John Smith's Expeditions
Four centuries ago a bold adventurer explored the bounty of Chesapeake Bay, helping to plant the seeds of a new nation. Though not a naval officer, John Smith proved an able master of his small boat and a dozen or so men as he explored what he called "faire bay" and its tributaries. With the 400th anniversary of Jamestown nearing, some groups, along with bay area politicians, are urging Congress to recognize his routes as a national historic trail, so modern boaters can follow in his wake.
