Historic trail would mark bay route of John Smith

February 20, 2005

WASHINGTON - U.S. senators from Maryland and Virginia are calling for creation of a Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Watertrail.

The trail would follow the route of Smith's exploration of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, joining 13 National Historic Trails that have already been established by the National Park Service.

The senators are backing legislation that would require the Park Service to conduct a feasibility study for the Smith trail.
