Time to settle in Virginia!
by Brandon Villarreal
The Virginia company had sent people to go start a colony in the Americas, called Virginia. The Virginia company, made up of wealthy men, did not send families. However, the Virginia colony nearly failed, the people can barely feed themselves, until tobacco became a profitable product. Tobacco required major hand labor, and it was grown on huge plantations and other place. So the white people of Virginia took slaves to do their work for them.
