Hello, welcome to our land. What brings you here?
I come in search of land and gold.
I wonder if he's an Indian
Christopher Columbus is out on his boat trying to see if he can find any land. He is also trying to see if he can find any gold.
Bringing new people
Soon enough, he finds unknown land. He assumes that this land is India. He can't wait to start exploring what is there.
What Columbus brought
I"m so ill...
Columbus realizes that he is not alone; and that other people on this land as well. These people are Native Americans, but Columbus thinks they're Indians because he thinks he is in India.
Thank you, thank you. I can't wait to see all the gold we can get.
Look at this new land, I can't believe it's ours! All thanks to Christopher Columbus.
Columbus wanted to find land for not only himself, but for England. When he found this land, he came back to England to bring people to the new land.
Did you hear? New land has been found. It has gold and a lot of acres of land.
Wow, that's fantastic! I must go.
New land?? Count us in!!
With all these new people coming, the Native Americans weren't prepared. Unfortunately, there was many diseases brought that they weren't immune to; mainly being small pox. They also forced them to convert to Christianity.
What's this Christianity thing anyway?
What is happening to our village?
With most of the Native Americans killed, the rest of them fled elsewhere. This meant that this land belonged to England and soon after that they made their first settlement: Jamestown.
