Watermen: A Kids’ View

The history of the Watermen that have worked on the Chesapeake Bay covers not only centuries of time of but a wide range of types of Watermen, too.  In the next few days, we will be adding more pages to this section.  These pages will portray these people, their work and culture, and the lasting impact they have made on our area and our nation. But, as a starter page, we thought it would be great to show you Watermen from the point of view of children.  The drawings below were created by children attending Achilles Elementary School in an area called Guinea in Gloucester County, VA…about 20 years ago.
