Question

Why did colonists come to Jamestown originally?

2 Answer

  • Jamestown was established in 1607, 13 years earlier than Plymouth. The Pilgrims landed at Plymouth to establish a colony in “North- ern Virginia” in December 1620. By this time, tobacco was Virginia's cash crop, the first Africans had arrived and representative government had been established in Virginia.
