Often compared unfavorably with colonial New England, the early Chesapeake has been portrayed as irreligious, unstable, and violent.  In this important study, James Horn challenges this conventional view and looks across the Atlantic to assess the enduring influence of English attitudes, values, and behavior on the social cultural evolution of the early Chesapeake.
