  1. 1. Hannah houze<br />Death at Jamestown<br />
  2. 2. One Bad Beginning<br />The ships that set of from London were stranded for three weeks off the British coast<br />Food and supplies diminishing, the colonists began to die<br />Finally, 104 colonists found land to settle on; a swampy peninsula<br />But their trouble were not over. They had to build a fort to protect against the Spanish, who did not want the British settling in the New World <br />
  3. 3. Jamestown Beleaguered<br />They were attacked by the Native Algonquin Indians, by their own internal discord, and by extensive diseases<br />New colonists and supplies were brought from England, and the new leader, John Smith, made an uneasy peace with the Natives. But he eventually went back to England<br />The following winter served as an epic death sentence for the majority of the colonists. Only 60/500 survived<br />The remaining colonists attempted to go home to England, but were met with Thomas West, who ordered them back to the town<br />
