Profile of Virginia Dare
President Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized the issuance of a five-cent postage stamp in 1937 to commemorate the 350th anniversary of Dare’s birth… Dare County, North Carolina, is named for her. The county includes both Roanoke Island and Kitty Hawk, where The Wright Brothers launched their first plane in 1903… In the late 1990s a group of climate researchers concluded the Roanoke colony had been established during the worst drought in more than 300 years.
