Remembering Roe: Celebrating the 38th Annv. of Roe v. Wade
In 1623, English duplicity took a celebrated turn when they poisoned the wine at a peace conference with the Pamunkey, which killed 200 natives. The English then engaged in their first reported scalping, of another 50 Pamunkey killed in an ambush. After Opechancanough’s failed strategy of surprise annihilation, it was open season on the natives. In 1644, Opechancanough was nearly a hundred years old and he mounted one last attack on the invaders, but by that time the Pamunkey were little more than nuisances to the vastly more numerous and heavily armed English. In 1646, Opechancanough was captured, chained, and put on display at Jamestown, where an English soldier, who was guarding him and thought him too prideful in his captivity, shot him to death.
