144 colonists are sent sent by the Virginia Company of London to the Americas(New World).
October 1609 - 1610
Lord de la Warr
Only 104 of the 144 colonists made it. They landed inland from Chesapeake bay up the James River.
Only 38 colonists ended up surviving. This led to John Smith taking control of the colony.
I can't wait to send this tobacco to England
John Smith heads back to England. The colonists experience hunger and other issues since he left. A new governor named Lord de la Warr came in 1610 but fell ill and sailed back.
John Rolfe (a tobacco farmer in Jamestown) marries Pocahontas (the daughter of the chief of Powhatan). This will help the relationship between Jamestown and Powhatan.
John Rolfe sends tobacco to England and it becomes super popular. The Virginia Company of London offers anyone who travels to the colonies 50 acres a person.
