  • THIS RIVER SHALL BE CALLED JAMES AND THE COLONY JAMESTOWN AFTER OUR KING

  • The colony survived it's first 2 years thanks to Captain John Smith who traded with the Powhatan. In 1609, he was injured and had to return to England.
  • THOSE WHO DO NOT WORK SHALL NOT EAT
  • Because Smith was the one who traded with the Powhatan, the colony ran out of food. The winter of 1609-1610 was called the "Starving Time"
  • WE ARE SOOOOO HUNGRY
  • Somehow, Jamestown survived this horrible time, and soon new colonists arrived to replace those who had died.
  • THANK GOODNESS WE SURVIVED
