Abstract:
Virginia Dare was the first English child born in the New World. Visitors to the Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo have seen the statue depicting her as an adult, but few know the remarkable journey it took to get there. Jackson chronicles how the statue was sculpted in Italy in the 1850s by Maria Lander of Massachusetts; went down in a shipwreck off the Spanish coast; survived a fire in a New York studio; alarmed North Carolinians when the semi-nude figure appeared in front of the Capitol building; and finally came to the vicinity of Dare's birth.
