David James Kiracofe describes the jubilee celebration in Jamestown inside of his “The Jamestown Jubilees: “State Patriotism” and Virginia Identity in the Early Nineteenth Century” article. Jamestown is the first English settlement to begin jubilees. Great details on whom attends these celebrations and the activities that take place are given.

Holidays now are once a year, too. This information is valid and would be useful to any one writing or speaking on jubilee celebrations or how holidays came along. Kiracofe must have found this significant enough to write about it.
