In 1907, Norfolk hosted the Jamestown Exposition, a celebration of America’s first permanent settlement on April 26, 1607, and an event that marked America’s ascension as a world power, in both military might and cultural influence. This exposition came at a time in American history when naval reviews, grandiose celebrations, world’s fairs, and international expositions were at their zenith of public popularity. These were the days when American imperialism reigned and expositions were an expression of patriotic fervor as never before seen in this country.
