Happy Croatoan Day!

According to, on this day in 1590, "John White, the leader of 117 colonists sent in 1587 to Roanoke Island (North Carolina) to establish a colony, returned from a trip to England to find the settlement deserted. No trace of the settlers was ever found."

This incident is key to my novel, so let's celebrate!
