PEARL LEONA STURGIS
The Patriots Daily Bites of American History, The Protestant Reformation Series 30, Volume 5
Sir Walter Raleigh 1552-1618 Just as John Wycliff was the “Morning Star” of the Protestant Reformation, so was Sir Walter Raleigh the Morning Star of the “Pilgrims Path to Freedom.” Raleigh never set foot on the East Coast of United States of America but his heart’s desire was to plant a colony for the English people to be free from the cruel tyranny of The Spanish Inquisition. He fought vigorously for the persecuted Huguenots in France. In 1584 he was crowned Captain of the Guards and Knighted by the Queen Elizabeth for his outstanding achievements in his fight for the Huguenots. Raleigh was an English soldier, Statesman and writer who did more than any one man to colonize our Country. He was imprisoned for reasons where no reasons could justifiably serve. He was beheaded in 1618 after a lengthy prison sentence in the Tower of London.
