The Political, Economic, Geographic, and Social factors of Jamestown By: John D. Rodriguez Jr
The House of Burgesses was a group of selected representative that met from 1619 to 1776. The House of Burgesses carried out orders from the governor and created local laws. This was the political factor of Jamestown.
We should enforce religious laws!
You sure you want to try that?
Before John Rolfe arrived, Jamestown was having a rough time as it was going through the starving time. But when John Rolfe arrived and started planting tobacco around, that made the colony mad profits and it helped the colony bloom into a boom to. This was the economic factor of Jamestown
Hey! Come look at all this tobacco I am growing!
AND MAY THE LORD PROTECT US FROM THE MANY YEARS TO COME!
The colony had a very strong belief that they were to have a strong protestant grasp in North America and to convert the natives to spread their religion. This was the social factor of Jamestown
The colony of Jamestown landed in a swamp swarmed by mosquitos, but has very, VERY fertile soil that help grow cash crops. These we the Geographic factors of Jamestown
It's pretty muddy around here...
You can say that again...
Why was it a surprise that Jamestown was a success?
It was a surprise that Jamestown was a success because of all the challenges they had to endure. They had to push back against native raids, deal with brutal famine during the starving time, and many lethal diseases. Even after all that, John Rolfe single handedly saved the colony and made it one of the first boomtowns in the North American Continent. It was a surprise after all those factors that were against it absolutely destroyed it's settlers, but they still came on top thanks to tobacco.
