Storyboard Text

  • Today I will be giving my presentation on early Jamestown.
  • In 1607 more than 100 passengers sailed on the James River and created English settlements in the New World. John Smith helped found and govern Jamestown. There were Separatists and Puritans 
  • There were a lot of dangers, such as Spanish warship, the natives, and the awful winter of 1609-1610.
  • Remarkably, the English kept coming for the hope that they could work off their debt and own a piece of land. 
  • Some wanted to find success growing cash crops. In 1611, more than 500 settlers were dead, but somehow the colony survived.
  • The reason why so many colonists died was because of dirty water, no women to take care of them, and starvation. Also, they only brought 1 surgeon! 
  • And that is my presentation on early Jamestown.
