Fort Raleigh is named after Sir Walter Raleigh, who helped fund England’s first attempts to colonize the New World. In 1584, Raleigh launched the first expedition to the New World, meeting the natives and mapping out the colony. In 1587, he sent 117 colonists to Roanoke Island. Due to mysterious and unknown circumstances, Roanoke Colony completely disappeared by 1590, and the word ''CROATAN,'' carved into a nearby tree, was the only clue found. Despite his failure to colonize the New World for England, Sir Walter Raleigh paved the way for the colonization of Jamestown, Virginia in 1607. Our patch features the coat of arms that Raleigh commissioned for Roanoke Colony. Attach it to a bag or jacket to commemorate the efforts of Sir Walter Raleigh to colonize the New World.
