Although I enjoyed Disney's "Pocahontas", the history major in me had to laugh at the sharp detour it took from actual documented events. That's okay...nobody expects Disney to be historically accurate.

For details about this boat and its remarkable journey, go to johnsmith.org where you'll find interactive maps and video clips.
Here are some of the photos I took of the boat and its crew at City Dock in Annapolis:
