Leinster Bay, St.John

Leinster Bay, St. John, June 3 and 4, 2009
Numerous web-zines provide details about St.John's visitors attractions as well as about its history. I like for example this description of history of Leinster Bay and the history of Annaberg. Apparently land above the bay changed hands several times, even the bay itself was renamed a few times. The most dramatic change came 1867, well after the end of slavery, when the plantation was abandoned by its owner, and later purchased by a former slave, George Francis. His son, Carl Francis took over 1899, and he was elected 1917 to be the person to raise US flag after the islands were purchased from Denmark.
