Storyboard Text

  • I am a gentleman! I do not farm! 
  • When the English settlers voyaged from England, they landed in a swamp in Virginia.
  • OWWW! I just got bitten by a mosquito!
  • Because of brackish water, flooding, starvation, and disease spread by mosquitoes many of the settlers were sick. A few years later, everyone was so starving they were eating shoes. This was called the "Starving Time"
  • The settlers realized that there was barely any gold, so they decided to focus on building a colony and began to farm. Their main export, tobacco, made Jamestown able to continue to succeed.
  • King James l was far away so the settlers created the House of Burgesses, the first American legislature.
