In 1607, more Englishmen went to the New World to find riches. They landed in Virginia, and named the town Jamestown, after King James. The land was a swampy wilderness. The men lazily did not want to work. Captain John Smith said, “No work, No food”. They did not find gold, but they learned how to plant tobacco, which they sold to England by the ton. Today it is famous for being the first permanent English colony in America.
