  • 3 New American Indian Historical Markers Set in King William, VA

    For the Virginia Indian community and friends:
    From the Daily Press:
    Markers to observe local Indian history
    September 17, 2005
    KING WILLIAM -- Three historical markers highlighting Virginia Indian
    history will be placed on the Middle Peninsula in King William County.

    The markers, approved by the Virginia Board of Historic Resources,
    include one that recalls the life of Cockacoeske, the Pamunkey queen
    who signed the Treaty of Middle Plantation in 1677. The signing of the
    treaty helped usher in peaceful relations between the colonists and
    Indians on the Middle Peninsula.

    Another marker describes the headquarters of Opechancanough. He was a
    chief of the Powhatan nations who coordinated attacks against the
    English in 1622 and 1644. The third marker commemorates Powhatan's
    temple site of Uttamusack.
    Everything is gonna be alright!
