An historian super sleuth has turned to the fundraising internet site “Kickstarter” to raise funds to prove that 16th Century English Explorer Sir Frances Drake made first landfall in Oregon – not California as currently believed.
Bob Ward, President of the non-profit “Drake in Oregon” group has released a very understandable historical accounting of how early historians got Drake’s first sailing trip around the world all wrong! And that they did it deliberately by order of the Queen of England. The history books say Drake’s first landfall in the new Americas was in California. Ward is preparing to prove otherwise – that Drake actually threw out his first anchor in Whale Cove, just south of Depoe Bay. And although Ward has spent many years gathering evidence to prove it, he’s seeking funds to seal the proof and re-write history – that the fraud was perpetrated by the then Queen of England who ordered her staff to falsify Drake’s route so as to keep Spain away from where England was looking for the so-called Northwest Passage – the one which supposedly would let sailors navigate back to England across the top of what was later to be the United States.
Ward’s presentation below, which seeks Kickstarter.com funding, outlines Drake’s journey and why historians succumbed to the deliberate fraud perpetrated by the Queen..
