(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique postcard published by the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities in 1907. It shows a view of the U. S. Government Monument obelisk in Jamestown Island, Virginia.
"U. S. Government Monument - Jamestown Island, VA. - Jamestown the first Permanent Colony of English people. The birthplace of Virginia and of the United States, May 13, 1607." "Representative Government in America began in the first house of Burgesses assembled here July 30, 1619." "This monument was erected by the United States, A. D. 1907 to commemorate the three hundredth anniversary here." "Lastly and chiefly the way to prosper and achieve good success, is to make yourselves all of one mind for the good of your country and your own, and to serve and fear God, the giver of all goodness, for every plantation which out Heavenly Father hath not planted shall be rooted out." - Advice of the Council for Virginia to the Colony, December, 1606.", reads the description printed on the back.
The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, scrapbook paper stuck at corners.
