“Another Day: More Stories from the Early Colonial Records of Virginia’s Eastern Shore” Book Signing & Lecture with Author Jenean Hall

Join Jenean Hall as she discusses her newest publication, “Another Day: More Stories from the Early Colonial Records of Virginia’s Eastern Shore” at Ker Place Friday, February 9th at 6pm. Jenean’s event is free with a Shore History membership or $5 at the door for not yet members.

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 believe 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 Native Americans in 1651, yet the records tell a different story. Another Day breaks some myths and retells other stories with revealing details. Also in those chapters, we learn that the first Eastern Shore attorney 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.
