NC's Lost Colony

For anyone visiting the NC Outer Banks (OBX), I'd highly recommend the outdoor drama, The Lost Colony. It was written by Paul Green (also the author of Texas which is presented at Palo Duro SP outside Amarillo) and first appeared in 1937.

From a recent article in the NY times:

The story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke has long lent a spooky note to grade schoolers’ study of American history. In 1587, an intrepid Englishman named John White took more than 100 settlers to Roanoke Island, which lies inside the chain of barrier islands that is today called the Outer Banks. It was Sir Walter Raleigh’s second attempt to colonize North Carolina, but the first to include civilians and families. White’s granddaughter, Virginia Dare, was the first child born in the New World to English parents, just a few weeks after their arrival.

A resupply trip sent White back to England, but a naval war with Spain delayed his return. When he finally came back, three years after he left, the settlers had vanished, but they had left behind cryptic clues: the word “Croatoan” carved into a fence post, and the letters “CRO” on a tree.

I'm not sure this recent discovery provides any definitive answers to the mystery but it sure makes for a good story. Cindy and I are heading that way tomorrow for a few days at the coast and we'll probably take in the play again - for at least the tenth time.
