  • Colonists arrive in Roanoke hoping to set up a colony. Their leader leaves for a supply trip across the sea and comes back to see nobody. The buildings are disassembled and people's belongings are gone. This scared more people wanting to colonize but Captain Newport and his crew decide to try again.
  • 1610
  • Captain Newport sets sail for Jamestown with a new bunch of colonists. Lots die of disease on the ship. They finally arrive and see Native Americans. Colonists start building and making friends with a Native American leader Chief Powhatan.
  • 1612
  • The starving period begins because of Native American tribes getting annoyed at their governor John Smith. John Smith was saved a year earlier by the daughter of Chief Powhatan, Pocahontas. At first he was a nice trader but got impatient and was being rude. The tribes decide to not trade any more food which then began the starving period.
  • 1619
  • The starving period ends and a someone named John Rolfe got to Jamestown after his shipwreck. This shipwreck gave him the ability to find Tobacco seed and bring them. Jamestown planted these crops. These crops were a huge money maker and let colonists trade for food, supplies, and more.
  • Colonists in Jamestown decide to make a government. They make a representative government, or a government where certain people lead or rule over places in the colony. Someone can rule agriculture and someone could rule workforce. Jamestown had a House of Burgesses where they would have meetings with the representatives.
  • In this year, slaves and woman were brought over the sea in a boat. Woman and slaves would be sold off. This was a big way Jamestown grew; more people could work the tobacco fields. Overall, this somewhat solidified Jamestown as a colony because now they had growing number of people and money. Also, as we all know money can get you a lot.
