The colonists traveled to the "New World" by boat and settled on the land. They went through harsh storms to get there. When they arrived they lost a few people to diseases.
The colonists were happy for a little while while they were there and built homes. They built farms too. They also started to find exotic plants.
While they were going to Croatoan islands most people died of diseases. The English had brought over some diseases too. Most of the Indians were allergic to these and they died. Also the Indians had diseases that eurpoeans were allergic too.
