The 1st English Settlement of Jamestown
After the Lost Colony of Roanoke, the English did not give up on the New World. Raw materials, trade, silver, gold, and spreading their faith motivated them to persist through many obstacles. Jamestown, founded in 1607, was the first permanent English settlement in the New World. Life was not easy for the settlers. In fact, many people lost their lives to disease and starvation. Native American society was negatively impacted by English encroachment onto their lands. Hostile relations soon erupted. Let’s not forget that slavery in the colonies started in Jamestown. We hope to take a bird’s eye view and look at multiple sides of the story (POV).
