In 1607, settlers from England established the Jamestown colony in North America. Unfamiliar with the land, they struggled to find food, and many fell victim to disease. As tension grew between the settlers and Powhatan American Indians who had lived on the land for generations, violence broke out. Would the Jamestown colony end in failure?
To understand the impact of a disaster, you must understand its causes. How did the settlers' attitude toward the Powhatan tribes result in violence? Did the settlers' search for gold blind them to the need for other necessities? Investigate the disaster from a cause-and-effect perspective and find out!
