Fall 2010 Membership Meeting  
  November 6, 2010  
  The Commonwealth Club, Richmond, Virginia
 
 

The Commonwealth Club welcomed Jamestowne Society members and guests at the Fall Meeting of the Society on Saturday, November 6, 2010. Council met at 9:00 A.M. Members and guests enjoyed a reception and luncheon which followed at 12:30 P.M.  The speaker was Bill Young, who, in colonial costume as Captain Gabriel Archer, addressed those present as though they were newly arrived English settlers at Jamestowne. Some of the news he brought was encouraging, but as someone who had survived the starving time on the island, he brought somber and serious comments on what it was like to survive such an ordeal. Captain Archer's knowledge of the colony brought new perspective to descendants of the early settlers, who greatly enjoyed his presentation. Young's presentation of Archer is enhanced by the careful detail of his costume, which reflects the fabric and construction of the times.
