Fact of the Day: Lost Roanoke Colony

Sir Walter Raleigh established the Roanoke Colony for Queen Elizabeth I in present-day North Carolina. While it was suppose to a permanent settlement, years later nobody could find any of the colonists left behind. It has since been called The Lost Colony of Roanoke as nobody is exactly sure what happened to them.

I love history too. Regarding the history behind Sir Walter Raleigh, makes me wondering about the "Sir" itself. Would you please tell me more about the "Sir" here. Look forward to it
