1614: John Rolfe and Pocahantas got married


It happened on this day in 1614:  Pocahontas married John Rolfe in Virginia.   She was the daughter of the chief of the Powhatan Indian confederacy and he was a tobacco planter.   The marriage gave us their son Thomas Rolfe and peace between the settlers and the Powhatans for years.
