Williamsburg National Wax Museum- Pocahontas and John Smith

After taking a week off, I'm back with a scene from the Williamsburg National Wax Museum. Here, we see a recreation Pocahontas saving the life of John Smith. This is a popular scene among historical wax museums, as the legend of Pocahontas and John Smith is one that Americans seem to relate to.

According to Smith, Wahunsunacock (1547-1618), the Chief was to be the one to kill Smith.

Pocahontas (1595-1617) pleading for mercy on John Smith.

John Smith (1580-1631) awaiting the ax (His account states the weapon as a club).

As I recall, Bob, a VERY similar scene was in the American Historical Wax Museum here in Gatlinburg, TN. I think a picture of it is in one of their old brochures.
