Storyboard Text

  • We have a rich supply of tobacco.
  • It ensured our success, and helped us become a permanent settlement.
  • I was the one that "legally" brought the tobacco seeds here. While everyone was starving and lying around in pain, I took the chance and planted my seeds.
  • John Rolfe
  • Slavery was not introduced immediately to Jamestown, it trickled in over the years. While the settlers themselves did just fine, the slaves started to work, increasing the man-power significantly. The rules weren't as harsh, and the slaves could be freed by being baptized.
  • The rich soil is extremely good for growing, and soon enough everyone grew tobacco.
  • Tobacco gave us enough profit to really start to build a town. Tobacco is one of the most desired items, so selling it isn't a problem.
  • It started to inspire people to leave the Old World and start a life in the New World
  • Jamestown is significant because it was the first successful, permanent settlement in the New World.
  • END by Gregory Wenokor and Aaron Waldner
