Discovering America Podcast

This podcast will be a history narrative collected from various sources.  I will be covering the stories of events and people that played a part in creating America.  My goal is to give the listener an entertaining dialog of history and walk away (or ear away) with a, “I didn’t know that”, feeling.

King James I was gracious enough to grant Lord Baltimore or George Calvert a stretch of land at the South Eastern promontory in Newfoundland a region that was known as Ferryland. It was great in the beginning but, a little on the cold side for his likely. He asked the new king, Charles, for a territory located in a warmer climate. The suggested area was Carolina but, in steps William Claiborne who already had his eye on this land. Next was the land area North of Jamestown, it was ripe for the settling. Yes, it was part of Virginia, not anymore, it would become Maryland. The worst part, this transferred control of the Indian trade and control of the great waterways connected to the great bay known as the Chesapeake to Lord Baltimore and his difference of religion. The Virginians are not going to be happy with this situation.
