Nathaniel Haggard Home (Pictured on the cover of the Kentucky Historical Society periodical Volume 6, No. 3, of January 1971) — The original room built by Nathaniel Haggard, Sr., in 1786 of hewn cherry and ash logs was still standing in good repair in 1949 when pictures were taken by William A. Fitzgerald. More rooms had been added at a later date. This house is located on the farm of W. E. Heflin on Howard Creek three miles south of Winchester on the east side of the Boonesboro Pike and three-quarter mile from the Pike.

The Bartlett Haggard home place is one-quarter mile north of his father's home and in 1949 was owned by Wheeler Haggard, son of James. The Bartlett Haggard Cemetery is to the right of the house and within sight, enclosed by a stone wall.

NOTE by Margaret K. (Haggard) Fitzgerald, 18 August 1980; "It was a small log house and was the center of a larger house built around it. We went to see it a few years ago. Last year (1979) it was burned down by vandals. The Nathaniel Haggard Cemetery, 200 yards northwest of the house, was a pasture and the field stone markers were gone.

Captain John Smith, of Lincolnshire in England, after having spent an Adventurous apprenticeship in the art of war in the Low Countries and in Turkey, set

sail from London, England, in December 1606 for the fertile and Salubrious coasts of Virginia. Captain Bartholomew Gosnold, who had already made a prosperous voyage to New England, George Perry, the brother of the Earl of Northumberland, Mr. Wingfield, a merchant, and Mr. Hunt, a clergyman, accompanied Smith and the colonists who numbered one hundred and five souls, embarked in three small vessels. They followed the old route by the Canaries and the West Indies. Smith became so popular with the colonists, that his jealous colleagues accused him of forming a conspiracy by which he was to make himself king of Virginia; they kept him in prison during the remainder of the voyage. Land was discovered at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay late in April 1607; it was named Cape Henry, in honor of the Prince of Wales. A river emptying its waters into the bay was named James River, in honor of the King. The strangers sailed into this stream, and ascended a distance of forty miles from its mouth. Here the landscape was so inviting, and the early beauties of a Virginia spring were so alluring, that on the 13th of May they resolved to pitch their tents and gave to the site thus chosen the name of Jamestown. The river's bank was so bold that their ships rode in six fathoms water, though moored to the trees on the land.

At this period, the extent of the country now known as Virginia was occupied by twenty thousand Indians eight thousand of them being subjects of Powhatan, a savage of warlike renown and superior talents. His dominions, acquired by inheritance, he had extended by conquest, and by his arts and the force of his character, had united forty tribes under his single authority. He looked with enmity upon the colonists and circumstances made him at an early period their implacable foe. Before many months had elapsed, the chief management of their affairs devolved upon Smith, a result which all had regarded as inevitable sooner or later. He devoted himself energetically to the building of Jamestown, and to the obtaining of provisions wherewith to stock it. He made a foray into an Indian settlement, and by the use of his firearms, induced a party of savages to load his boat with corn, venison and wild fowl, and to accept beads and hatchets in return. He repeated his excursions from time to time, though dissensions invariably broke out among his people during his absence. Before the approach of winter he had gained such an ascendancy over the Indians, that on invading their territory he was certain to find them awaiting his coming, with baskets laden with corn, beans and pumpkins. The bays and rivers were covered with ducks and geese, and thus the tables of the adventurers were thus bountifully spread.

In one of his attempts to find the source of the Chickahominy River, being very insufficiently attended Smith's party was attacked by three hundred savages led by Opechancanough, Powhatan's brother. Though wounded in the thigh, he bound one of the Indian guides to his left arm, using him as a buckler, and at the same time plied his musket so effectively that he killed three of his assailants and wounded several others. While attempting to reach his canoe, he sank with his buckler on his arm up to his waist in a bog. The savages dared not approach him 'till benumbed with cold he threw away his arms and shield in token of surrender. They extricated him from the morass, carried him in their bivouac, and attempted to restore the circulation to his frozen blood by vigorous friction.

Smith, without condescending to beg for his life, requested to speak with the chief. Upon being presented to Openhancanough, he drew from his pocket a portable ivory compass which he used to guide his course through the woods. He called the chief's attention to the restless play of the needle, at the same time attempting to explain own account of the the wonderful purpose it was made to serve. In his interview, he states that he went on to expound the mysteries of astronomy, the alternations of the seasons and the revolutions of the earth, "and how the sun did chase the night about the world continually;" but those who are aware how difficult it is to comprehend these abstruse matters, and to obtain an adequate conception of the Copernican system, even with the aid of diagrams and an oratory, will probably conclude that Smith entirely overrated his skill in pantomime. But at any rate, the interesting little dial, which no doubt was taken for a god or medicine, saved him from the immediate death to which he was doomed, and he was taken in a procession to the village of Orapax. Here the warriors performed a hideous war dance around him, to the delight of the assembled squaws and papooses. He was then plied so bountifully with excellent fare, that he imagined he was to be fattened for the table--a calumnious supposition, by the way, as the Indians of North America have always been free from the disgusting practice of cannibalism.

Some time after this, Smith was taken to Werowocomoco, the residence of POWHATAN, the great chief. He was detained for a time, that the emperor might receive him with becoming ceremony. He was at last introduced into a wigwam of unusual size, in the center of which was a blazing fire. At one end, upon a rude throne, sat Powhatan, a man of noble stature, and of majestic, though severe demeanor. He was dressed in raccoon skins, "the tails all hanging by." On one side of him was his daughter Matachanna, on the other his younger and favorite daughter Matoaka, the "Snow Feather," destined in the coming hour to render herself immortal under the beautiful assumed name Pocahontas. Against each wall of the wigwam sat a row of women, their faces and shoulders painted red, their hair adorned with the white down of birds, and their necks ornamented with beads.

The Queen of Apamatuck brought the guest water with which to wash his hands, and another lady of rank a bunch of feathers with which to dry them. A consultation was then held, at the end of which two large stones were laid before POWHATAN. Smith was dragged to the altar thus improvised, and his head was placed on the stones. Some half dozen savages raised their clubs in the air, waiting for Powhatan's signal to beat out the helpless victim's brains. Matoaka for a moment stayed her father's purpose by her tears and entreaties; but finding all intercession unavailing, she sprang forward, kneeled over Smith's prostrate form, clasped his head in her arms, and placing her own upon it, seemed determined to share his fate. This heroic and generous act touched the hearts of Powhatan and the executioners; the chief to the solicitations of his daughter, and set the sentence of death aside, resolving to employ Smith as an artisan, to make hatchets, bows and arrows for himself, and bells and beads for MATOAKA.

Matoaka was at this period twelve years old, having been born in 1795. Of her life up to the period of which we are speaking, nothing whatever is known, and history has preserved no record of the influences which conspired to form a character which would have been beautiful anywhere, and was a marvel in one reared in a Virginia forest, amid lawless and untutored savages. It is certain however, that upon the settlement of the English colonists in their vicinity, Powhatan changed her name to that of Pocahontas signifying "a run between two hills." He appears to have believed that by thus concealing her true name he would deprive the English of the power of harming her should she by any mischance fall into their hands.

John Smith was detained two days, and then dismissed with compliments and promises of friendship. Powhatan often sent Pocahontas to Jamestown with provisions of which the colonists stood at great need. Mr. William Strachey, the first secretary of the colony, makes the following incidental mention of these visits of Pocahontas, in his "History of Travail into Virginia Britainia": "The better sort of women cover themselves for the most part all over with the skin mantels finely grist shagged and fringed at the skirt. Their younger women go not shadowed amongst their own company until they be nigh eleven or twelve returns of the leaf old — for so they eclamptic and bring about the year — nor are they much ashamed thereof, and therefore would the before remembered Pocahontas, a well-featured but wanton young girl, POWHATAN's daughter, sometime resorting to our fort, get the boys forth with her into the market place, and make them wheel, falling on their hands, turning up their heels upwards, whom she would follow and wheel so herself, naked as she was, all the fort over; but being once twelve years, they put on a kind of semicinctum leathern apron, as do our artificers or handicrafts men."

Smith returned the same winter to Werowocomoco, bringing with him one Captain Newport, who had just arrived from England, and was anxious to behold the emperor. Powhatan exerted himself to entertain them sumptuously. He received them reclining upon his couch of mats and dressed as before in the fur of the raccoon, his pillow of skins lying beside him brilliantly embroidered with shells and beads. Speeches and feasts with dancing and singing followed; and finally Newport and Powhatan made up their minds to trade. Newport was inclined to haggle, but was reproved by Powhatan. "Captain Newport," said he, "it is not agreeable to my greatness to truck in this piddling manner for trifles. I am a great sachem, and I esteem you the same. Therefore lay me down all your commodities together; what I like I will take, and in return you shall have what I conceive to be fair value." Upon this request being acceded to, Powhatan coolly made an adroit selection, giving three bushels of corn in exchange. Newport had calculated upon twenty hogsheads at least.

Smith, vexed at Newport's imprudent operation by which he had greatly lowered the value of many articles of barter saw it was indispensable to do away with its ill effects by a counter operation. He drew forth a quantity of toys and gewgaws, glancing at them dexterously in the light. Powhatan eyed with admiring gaze a string of blue glass beads. Smith put the beads away. Powhatan offered to buy them. Smith said they were not for sale. Powhatan insisted. Smith replied that they were the color of the sky and only to be worn by great sachems. He soon became quite beside himself to possess the beads, and finally purchased them for three hundred bushels of corn. Smith, not ashamed of having overreached the father of Pocahontas in this unseemly manner subsequently outwitted her uncle Opechancsnough in precisely the same way. Blue beads soon became imperial symbols of enormous value and none but sachems and members of their families dared to be seen wearing them.

Powhatan's fancy was next attracted by the swords of the colonists which he had occasion to admire as more efficient than the native hatchets and tomahawks. Remembering Newport's indefinite notions of barter and sale he sent him twenty turkeys with a request for twenty swords in return, with which that inconsiderate gentleman furnished him unhesitatingly. He attempted to wheedle Smith in the same way but the shrewd pioneer kept the turkeys and swords both. Powhatan therefore ordered his people to possess themselves of the weapons of the English whenever an opportunity offered either by stratums or force. They commenced their depredations and continued them until surprised by Smith, and then confessed that he was endeavoring to obtain arms that he might afterwards exterminate them. When the sachem learned that his plot was discovered he sent the gentle Pocahontas to Smith with directions to excuse him and to lay the entire blame upon his disorderly and ungovernable warriors. Smith released his prisoners after a sufficient chastisement sending word to Powhatan that if he treated them with unmilitary clemency it was wholly due to the intercession of Pocahontas.

Smith was now elected governor of Virginia. Newport, who had in the meantime sailed home to England, returned bringing numerous costly presents for Powhatan — the effect of which would be, Smith feared, to cause the emperor to overrate the importance of his own favor. One of the presents was a royal crown, the gift of King James I, who doubtless hoped to seduce Powhatan into submission to his dominion or at least to assimilate the royal authority of his sylvan ally to his own by the solemn ceremony of a coronation. Smith set out to invite Powhatan to Jamestown for the purpose of receiving the presents. On his arrival at Werowocomoco he found Powhatan absent. Pocahontas sent for him immediately and in the meantime entertained her visitors with an extraordinary pageant which in the original narrative is called an "anticke."

A fire was made in an open field and Smith was placed upon a mat before it with his men around him. Hideous shouts were then heard in the woods and the Englishmen fearing a surprise seized their arms. "Then presently," says the chronicle, "they were presented with this anticke. Thirty young women came naked out of the woods only covered behind and before with a few green leaves; their bodies all painted some one color and some another, but all differing. Their leader had a pair of buck's horns on her head and an otter's skin at her girdle, another at her arm, a quiver of arrows at her back, a bow and arrows in her hand. The next had in her hand a sword, another a club, another a pot-stick, all horned alike; the rest every one with their several devices. These fiends, with most hellish shouts and cries, rushing from among the trees, caste themselves in a ring about the fire, singing and dancing with the most excellent ill variety, oft falling into their infernal passions, and again to sing and dance. Having spent near an hour in this masquerade as they entered in like manner they departed.

"Having reconditely themselves, they solemnly invited Smith to their lodgings, when he was no sooner within the house but all these nymphs more tormented him than ever, with crowding, pressing and hanging about him, most tediously crying, 'Love you not me?' This salutation ended, the feast was set consisting of all the savage dainties they could devise, some attending, others dancing about them. This mirth being ended, with firebrands instead of torches they conducted him to his lodging.

"Thus did they show their feats of arms, and others art in dancing. Some others used their oaten pipes, and others voices chanting."

The next mention of Pocahontas in the Virginia chronicles is in the character of the guardian angel of the settlers. Powhatan had resolved to fall upon the English, and made such formidable preparations as would secure him an easy triumph, had not his intentions been divulged by his daughter. "For Pocahontas, his dearest jewel, in that dark night came through the irksome woods and told our Captain great cheer should be sent us by and by but Powhatan and all the power he could make would after come kill us all, if all that brought it could not kill us with our own weapons when we were at supper. Therefore if we would live she wished us presently to be gone. Such things as she delighted in the Captain would have given her but with tears running down her cheeks she said she darest not be seen to have any for if Powhatan should know it she were but dead and so she ran away by herself as she came." Thus placed upon his guard by his amiable and disinterested preserver Smith baffled the artful design of Powhatan and with his men departed at high water.
