Pocahontas Mural At The Gloucester Library

The Pocahontas mural on the side of the Gloucester County Library has had it's share of debate. Some people love it, some hate it and some could care less either way. To shed some light on this issue, we thought we would point out that the mural is a time line from left to right of the life of Pocahontas. On the far left of the mural is Chief Powhatan, followed by Pocahontas as a child, then defending Captain John Smith and then with her husband John Rolfe and ending with her last year of life in Europe as the toast of the town. Click Here for more history on Pocahontas. When you understand the mural itself, maybe there can be more appreciation for this wonderful piece we are fortunate to have here in Gloucester.
