after john white leaves
I will tell john white were we are going the nearest island the Croatian island.
governor john white left April 26 1587 to go to Portsmouth. the goal was to set up a colony near the Chesapeake bay. when they arrived at roanoke island hey found a demolished hose and the bones of one man.
on august 18 john whites daughter gave birth the first English child born in north america. the child's name was Virginia. john white decided to go back to England for supplies he trip was suppose to last 6-8 weeks bu it lasted almost 3 years.
they forced white to get supplies because they were running out of food supplies. john white tried to send ships over to get the colonists but the queen of England wouldn't allow it. the colonists struggled to get food so they left for Croatian island never to be seen again.
