  • The Journey 
  • Settlement 
  • Starving Time
  •  On May 14, 1607, the english colonist  landed on a narrow peninsula–virtually an island–in the James River, where they would begin their lives in the New World. 
  • Winter
  • After the settlement in the so called "New World" all they found was disappointment when the land was covered in swamps that had all sorts of hazardous insects.  
  • Tobacco
  • During this time the settlers were dying because of a policy called the "No work no food"
  • Success
  • Then in 1609, the colony suffered a long harsh winter which caused almost half of the colony to die.
  • All hope was lost until tobacco was found. This weed helped the colony grow back to its successful state
  • After the discovery of tobacco, the colony started to become more and more successful selling tobacco. Until 1698 when the central statehouse burned down and was replaced by Williams-burg to be the colonial capital the following year.
