  • Gold
  • Where's the gold?!?
  • Tobacco was a big cash crop in Jamestown. When John Smith and his colonists couldn't find gold,  a man named John Rolfe realized that he could grow tobacco and make lots of money on it. He did, and tobacco was a huge success in England.
  • Indentured Servant
  • Work!!
  • In the times of 1609 to 1610 British Colonists in Jamestown were rapidly dying from the inability to grow food . This era was known as the Starving Time.
  • Ohhh..
  • Undoubtedly, every colonist that came to Jamestown wanted one thing, and one thing only; GOLD! Gold was a huge driving factor for any one that came to Jamestown. Unfortunately, no one found even a sliver of gold.
  • An indentured servant was a man that could not afford to pay his taxes. Instead of jailing the man, the King of England made him into essentially a slave. The more money you owed, the more work you did. When you finally worked off your debt, you're a free man. King James I primarily sent servants to Virginia to mine gold and do time.
