Re: William West & the Bacon Rebellion

In Reply to: Re: William West & the Bacon Rebellion by William Dee Carver (Sr) Bill of 1388

My main source on this period is a very interesting book: Stephen Saunders Webb, 1676: The End of American Independence (Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1984). It is an excellent work on Bacon's Rebellion and the other colonial events at the same time, ie. King Phillip's War. It has an extensive section on William Carver, who led the naval forces of Bacon's rebels. He was indeed captured by Governor Berkeley and hanged (everyone was British in those days). You may be able to find the book in a library or bookshop. If not, send me an e-mail and I will try to scan the relevant pages.
