Meet Don Diego de Molina, a Spanish commander, who was captured near a Virginia Fort in 1611. He will be allowed an interview with those wishing to meet him but beware - he is alleged to be a Spanish spy! In June 1611, a Spanish warship anchored near the English Fort Algernon at Point Comfort near the mouth of the James River. When Don Diego de Molina and two of his crew stepped ashore, they were surrounded by 50 Englishmen and marched off as prisoners. Peace was settled between England and Spain just before the founding of Jamestown in 1607 – but Spanish spies kept a close eye on the settlement and its threat to a century of Spanish rule in the Americas. Under close arrest at James Fort, Molina quickly learned how desperate the conditions were for the Englishmen “held captives by their masters.” Some of the details we know today about life in the fort come from reports Molina smuggled out of the colony and back to Spain. Will Molina convince the English servants to rebel? Will he be hung as a spy by the English or rescued by the Spanish? Learn about this Spanish captive and his experience at James Fort.
