In 1671 Batts and Fallam were hired by a Major Woods to walk across Virginia and look for the Pacific Ocean. This was when Virginia had hardly been touched by a European hand. It's difficult to comprehend Virginia without it's contemporay landmarks and geography. But at this time there was no Richmond, Alexandria, Norfolk. Batts and Fallam took off in 1671 to explore this untamed land. I wanted to capture their adventure in a visual way, showing their path and linking it to their own words.
