THE MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE
OF ROANOKE COLONY IN AMERICAN HISTORY
Berkeley Heights, NJ : Enslow,
IL 5-8, RL 5.1
White was anxious to get to shore. He had been away three years and
wanted to return to the settlement. He was the governor of Roanoke
and had been away too long. But it was dark and he and his men waited
until morning to row to shore. When they reached shore, they did
not find the thriving settlement they expected. They found an abandoned
fort and the cryptic words "Croatoan". Search as they might, no human
was found. Does this sound like the start of a horror story?
Well, it is actually the true story of Roanoke Colony that disappeared
back in 1590. Can you figure out what happened?
