Likewise, commercial enterprises were able to appropriate Pocahontas in order to sell their products. In 1889 the Cameron and Sizer Cigarette Company of Richmond, Virginia offered a Pocahontas "color picture premium" in packs of its cigarettes. The card depicts a half-naked Pocahontas saving John Smith from several dark brown figures wielding clubs below a formal portrait of Pocahontas dressed in a 17th century hat and square lace collar. The transformation presented here seems to be the point: the subject has gone from barefoot heathen to proper English lady in just a few years. On the back of the card the sponsor promises "A Complete Pictorial History of America, in serial cards..." Others in the series include Columbus, Magellan, Sir Walter Raleigh, John Smith, "Puritan Woman", and "English Country Man, Settler 1614." John Rolfe didn't make this list apparently. The "Pictorial History of America" is interesting in that it implicitly defines "American History" as those events before the American Revolution. Perhaps the painful years of Reconstruction were not the time to commemorate more recent history, especially in Richmond. In that case, Pocahontas must have had a particularly benign appeal as a face from the far-distant past as well as a conciliatory representation of the racial "other."
