In this story, in the year 1562, Jacques and Rouffi have sailed to the new world on an expedition to establish a colony for French Protestants (Huguenots). The Huguenot colony was settled on what is present day Port Royal in Beaufort County. They named it Charlesfort after Charles IX of France. After a short while, the leader of the expedition, Captain Jean Ribaut goes back to France to obtain more provisions. About 28 Huguenots remain at Charlesfort. Discontent soon arises and Captain Barre assumes command. Barre decides to return to France in a small homemade boat. Rouffi chooses to remain at Port Royal. After a short time, the settlement ends in failure.
