  • Founding date: 1607 Location: inside the Chesapeake Bay, on the James River. Motivations: Expand England's territory; search for gold and other riches; grow cash crops (Tabaco).
  • One bad thing about their colony is that they were building it right next to a swamp which was bad for farming. And, around 440 out of 500 colonists had died by the Spring.The diseases spread killing half of their men.
  • If I went back in time I would bring medics because they got a disease. Also I would move somewhere else that is good for farming, because the place they originally lived was bad for farming.
