The English Settlement
part of the history of Amercia. When the explors first discoverd this land they named it Virginia beause of thier virgin Quein. Then, they picked out some land and named it
Jamestown. Jamestown was the veary first english settlement ever. When the ship came
down a river they named it "The James" they got it from there king , James The First. In the
spring of 1607, hundredsof indian worriors arrived at Jamestown and attacked them for the
land. The english settlement did have lots of magor roles in the history of Amercia.
For example in 1618 a company inroduced "sweeping,"it is designed to replace the colonys
severe code matiral law. What made them speacial was that they had a trianular fort insted
of a squar fort. By that winter fwere than 40 of the original coloinst that arrived at Jamestown survived. The arrival of seven-hundred coloists during 1608-1609 led to a steadyand worseing reations with the powhatans. A poor diet led to deaths of two-thirds
of the men in Jamestown. As you can see Jamestown did have lots of historys in the colonial days.
Turmoil and Growth
It was horrble during turmoil and growth (the starving times) beacuse lots of people died of
starvation. In 1609-1610 was called "the starving times." Also in the spring of1610 Jamestown sufferd a grate death toll. Next after Smith left only 60 colonists remsined. People wanted to leave but a ship came with lots of supplise. The previous winter 90% of the colonists died during that winter. Yes. It was a bad year for the colonist but it did get better after that year.
