THIS IS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR GOLD!
Social: The Starving Time
So many people are dying i can barely do my job!
Political: The house of burgesses
I think we should have our own government
I agree, we should name it ... THE HOUSE OF BURGESSES
In the early 1600s, men from england came to create a colony named jamestown so they could dig for gold. they were sponsored by the london company, who thought there was gold. they did not have any workers so it was hard to work.
Economic: Tobacco growing
In The winter of 1609-1610 nearly half of the jamestown colonists died of starvation or starvation related disease. The colonists would eat anything they could get their hands on including dogs, cats, boots, hats, and anything they could get their hands on. It was a terrible time for the colony.
the house of burgesses was created in Jamestowne to govern them since the king was in England and couldn't.
in 1614, John Rolfe found tobacco and started shipping it to London after he found out how to smoke it. Because of that, Jamestowne started getting rich off of tobacco and stopped mining for gold to farm it. This was the start of smoking.
