The 400th anniversary of the landing of Africans traded as slaves in English-occupied North America
The landing was at Point Comfort in Hampton, Virginia, and the location is now part of the Fort Monroe National Monument, a unit of the National Park system. The Act which established the Service was passed in 1916.
