More > shadow of doubt where the intrepid English Captain reached mainland along the West Coast. Queen Elizabeth and Drake changed the course of history. The Mystery begins in 1577. Queen Elizabeth set into motion an effort to establish a new colony along a “strait” that Marco Polo said was situated at 48°N Latitude on the Pacific Northwest Coast. That’s right at the Latitude of Port Townsend. Drake mentioned in his published report that he observed “the in-flowing and out-flowing of waters” that takes place at Admiralty Inlet. Dutch mariners sailing right behind Drake mapped the Peninsula that later shows up on charts by Manuel Quimper and George Vancouver.

At last, we know the reason for an ongoing feud between Queen Elizabeth and Sir Francis. He wanted desperately to rescue the shipmates that he left behind in New Albion. Drake used a shipboard clock to map the West Coast. This is the first map of America that was made using a chronometer: thus Drake's map is accurate to within 15-degrees of the true longitude. Drake was not "just a pirate" as most historians assume. He was a naturalist, ethnographer, and geographer. Drake's map and his new ship design opened the way for the Dutch East India Company.< Less
