The shipwreck that saved Jamestown or “The Tempest”

The wreck of the Sea Venture on Bermuda on July 28, 1609 and the role its survivors played in the eventual rescue of the failing colony at Jamestown are dramatic tales from the founding years of our nation. A little-known but well-speculated fact is that Shakespeare’s play “The Tempest” gathered inspiration from the event also.

The Sea Venture, sailing from England to the desperately needy Jamestown with supplies, was wrecked off the future colony of Bermuda.   Although believed lost, the castaways survived for 10 months and then reluctantly finished the sail to Jamestown. 
Upon their arrival, they found a starving, almost completely decimated colony. 
Nearly successful in convincing Gates to abandon the endeavor, the fates intervened when another Virginia Company fleet vessel arrived as they were exiting the James River bound for England, and Gates turned around to salvage the Jamestown colony as well as England’s interest in the New World.

“As the battered Sea Venture headed for an island grounding on July 28, 1609, the voyagers guessed that they were landing on haunted Bermuda.”

 

From the History News Network article; “Thus it may be said that July 28, 2009 marks two quadricentennials. One is the unintended founding of Bermuda by castaways who came ashore on a rain-whipped day in 1609. The other is the birthday of a sprite, a wild man, and a mercurial magician, characters given life when a Jamestown shipwreck captured the imagination of a literary master and inspired an enduring tale called The Tempest”

Hanging with the Coast Guard

Hanging with the Coast Guard

Thanks, Tony, for these photos of your new Dead Reckoning the Pacific Graveyard shipwreck chart hanging in your office at the United States Coast Guard Regional Exam Center in Portland, Oregon.
Tony has to say:
“Hello Bill,
Well I got my Dead Reckoning piece hung up in my office here with the Coast Guard Regional Exam Center in Portland; it looks really awesome and I am very pleased with it. Thanks! You did a great job on it.
Dead Reckoning office photo hanging with the Coast Guard
I have attached two photos of the piece on my wall; they aren’t the best photos as my office is some what small and hard to get a good shot, but at least you can get an idea of what it looks like; everyone here really likes it as well.

It was good meeting you and I hope to get down to Astoria one of these days again and will try to look you up if I can; you are also welcome to come here to my office in Portland if you would like any time.

Thanks again,
Tony Sellers”

February 14th is 150 years of Oregon statehood, that is what it means to us, and of course History in VogueTM is planning something great (too bad yo have to wait nearly two more years to find out just how great…)!
We have some stellar party favors, now, though…celebrations of the rugged history of this pioneering state:
Events are planned all around the state, including the display of the most important document in Oregon history, the constitution of the state of Oregon. You can read a copy online or go to Salem to see this rarity in person on Saturday, February 14 (the official date of Oregon’s birth).
Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard celebrates the NW Oregon/Lower Columbia River’s maritime heritage, and makes a great way to demonstrate your love of Oregon.
Happy Birthday, Oregon…blow out your candles, make a wish and have your cake!
