John Smith John Smith is well known in Virginia where he helped found Jamestown Colony in 1607, but what about here in New England? Our goal at SeacoastNH.com is to raise awareness for John Smith's contribution to the founding of New England as well. To flesh out the story of this complex character, we've explored the World Wide Web to provide you with the whole story. There are at least 50 links here to articles on Smith, Jamestown, Pocahontas, his writings and his impact on New England. Was he just a braggart and a promoter, or a critical figure in New England history? Enjoy the cruise. --- JDR
