Half of the settlers died within the first year that Jamestown was forming. The famous phrase "if you do mot work, you do not eat." was said by Captian John Smith. John Rolfe started planting and growing the Tobacco that he had gotten from the west indies, in 1612.
YIPEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! I'M GONNA BE RICH WITH THIS GREAT CASH CROP OF MINE!!!!!!
hah, look at you getting your hands all dirty, and why because you are'nt good enough to be a higher up like me
Hah, no wonder you have such an inadequate grammar, racism springs from ignorance!
When Jamestown was first created they had roughly 26 more Gentlemen than labor men or should I say man and the labor men had to build the gentlemen's houses because they were "higher ups". Other than the labor men they brought 26 slaves to do anythng they were told or that the gentlemen would not do.
The area where the Jamestown settlement was, was really good because it had fertile soil and was right next to there river and main water source. The only problem was that it was.... there only water source, so everyone would bath n it and that's where their food supply is too and their poop and other things would run into the water and that is why it is called Brackish Water. Along with the nasty water came mosquitos, which of course carry a disease called malaria.
What is the deal with these dumb mosquitos?!?!
Since their king was so distant they made there own government called the house of Burgesses and they would decide on kinda everything that would happen. 2 Representatives would go and represent them and make the decisions that they could not decide on.
I am a represenative and I make decisions
It was surprising because it was like a rolarcoaster ride it started bad, then got good, then got bad, then even worse, and it was bad more than it was good.
Why is it surprising that Jamestown was successful?
