The John Smith shallop, a replica of Smith’s 28-foot open boat, is on display on the National Mall as a part of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. A crew of 12 modern explorers set off in May 2007 aboard the “shallop,” on a 121-day voyage to retrace the 1608 expedition. Propelling themselves by oar and sail alone, the 2007 voyage followed Smith’s route to every corner of the Chesapeake.
