Anthony Langstroms map definitively locates Opechancanoughs head quarters as “The Island.”
The map was filed away in England without a date and author. In 1984, Martha McCartney identifies the author and date through handwriting analysis.
“Menmend an ancient Seat of Opachancone [Opechancanough] ye late Emperour”
An Interesting fact to note is that the
“Historical Research Community” seem to gladly accept the fact that Opechancanough lived on the Island even though this is
the only reference in all history to his location. Yet even with close to 50 separate references to the Manskin indians, there
is denial of their existence. This is due to current political ramifications of acknowledging the existence of a “new” tribe.
