- DescriptionExcerpt from The Cavaliers of Virginia, or the Recluse of Jamestown, Vol. 1 of 2: An Historical Romance of the Old Dominion The romance of history pertains to human annals more strikingly than to the early settlement of Virginia. The mind of the reader at once reverts to the names of Raleigh, Smith, and Pocahontas. The traveller's memory pictures in a moment the ivy-mantled ruin of old Jamestown. About the year 16 -, the city of Jamestown, then the capital of Virginia, was by means an unapt representation of the British metropolis; both being torn by contending factions, and alternately subjected to the sway of the Roundheads and Royalists. First came the Cavaliers who fled hither after the decapitation of their royal master and the dispersion of his army, many of whom became permanent settlers in the town or colony, and ever afterwards influenced the character of the state.
