Series: The World of 1619

Join the Governor General of Virginia—Baron Thomas West, Lord Delaware— as he prepares to return to Jamestown in early April of 1618. Rumors abound that several officers of the Virginia Company may be involved in a scheme to use the fledging colony as a base to attack Spanish treasure fleets! In the 7 years Lord Delaware has been away from Virginia, his appointed deputies have enforced the martial law he enacted in 1610 and the colony has grown from near collapse to 18 settlements. But now, if the rumored plot is true, then the Spanish could have reason to send a fleet to destroy Jamestown!
