Back before there was a United States, one of the early settlements was Roanoke Island. It didn’t go well. But what happened to the people? Justin in California suggested this on the Halloween Haunt Facebook page. I give you Halloween news on Twitter @HalloweenHaunt. If you would like to give to the Haunt, scroll down TheHalloweenHaunt.com and look to the left. Thank you. That’s also where you’ll find every episode.
Wikipedia has a wealth of knowledge about Roanoke Island, John White, Virginia Dare, and much more. National Geographic looks into evidence that we’ve found evidence of the colony.
