Why Sir Walter Raleigh Would Influence Me To Go To America
Sir Walter Raleigh would definitely influence me to go to America. He sailed to North America and found the colony of Roanoke. When he came back to Europe, he told everyone about the abundance of natural resources and the humble Natives who lived there. Since England was at war with Spain at the time, this would have sounded like a great plan.
There is one bad thing about the colony of Roanoke, though. Once Raleigh came back to get more supplies to take care of the colony, it was all gone. The Natives had left and the colony was empty. But, if some people were to inhabit the colony, it probably would have been okay. People would have been able to plant crops and keep the colony alive. In conclusion, Raleigh's findings of new resources and Natives would have influenced me to go to America.
