Plantations in Colonial Virginia
After the colonists settled Virginia, life could be a good or bad thing. This depended on how wealthy you were or how you lived your daily life. Plantation owners were very wealthy while others had to work the plantations. There were very few plantation owners and if you were a plantation owner, some fun activities would be playing card games, horseback riding, hunting and occasionally cock fighting which is when two roosters fight. These games were more for the wealthy than the poor and the most common activity for the wealthy plantation owners was visiting each other. Visiting then wasn't like visiting today. Visiting plantation owners involved living with one family for seven weeks than that family would return to visit the other family for seven weeks. People who worked for the plantation owners had to work all day to feed their families. These workers were either slaves or indentured servant. Altogether the Virginia colony could be a grueling place to live depending on how wealthy you were.
Virginia is a southern colony with a lot of colonial history. Before colonist started thriving the Native Americans were already established. Captain John Smith came to Virginia to get riches while colonizing Virginia. Living in Colonial Virginia you could make a living in farming, farming was like gold to some farm owners. Virginia was a good place to start a new life.
