Three ships were that were paid for by the Virginia Company arrived in Chesapeake Bay in 1607. They called their colony Jamestown.
The Europeans met the Powhatan people on Jamestown. Later on they traded between each other. Chief Powhatan was the leader of the Powhatan people. John Smith led the Europeans.
Smith got hurt from a gun powder explosion in 1609. He had to go back to England. With him gone the colony barely survived. So John Rolfe found a answer. He harvested tobacco which became a cash crop. It made money but had the colonists working more in a day then they had in a week.
