Description


"Error in history is like a flock of sheep jumping over a bridge; if one goes, the rest all follow."

(Charles Campbell, cited by Jennings Cropper Wise in Ye Kingdom of Accawmacke)


In Another Day, Jenean Hall sets her hand to some of the errors told about colonial Virginia's Eastern Shore history. For example, some historians are still saying that Sir George Yeardley was in cahoots with Captain Epps against Thomas Savage, yet no evidence supports that premise. Another oft-told tale is that Edmund Scarburgh led an unauthorized raid against the Indians in 1651, yet the records tell a different story. Another Day breaks some myths and retells other stories with revealing details. Also in these chapters, we learn that the first Eastern Shore attorney of record was a woman; the

Laughing King was not named for his personality; and "Dunking was not always about doughnuts." Another Day is well-cited research, written for your enjoyment.
