1619: Arrival of the First Africans– Explore the legacies of the first Africans who came to Virginia in 1619, from their lives before capture in Angola to the grueling transatlantic journey that brought them to North America and the world they made in a new land. Courtesy of the Hampton History Museum.

 The Great Charter and the General Assembly: Founding a Legacy in 1619 Explores the origins of Virginia’s General Assembly in the Great Charter of 1618, which abolished martial law, allowed private ownership of property, and authorized the governor to summon the colony’s first General Assembly.
