Learning about John Smith

Williamsburg, VA, United States
19 Kudos
I really enjoyed Historic Jamestowne. As a kid in school we read about the Jamestowne colony. After the trip, the history came to life. I especially loved the story about John Smith. He played an important role in the establishment of the colony at Jamestown, Virginia. He was a leader of the Virginia Colony between September 1608 and August 1609, and he led an exploration along the rivers of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay. Smith trained the first settlers to farm and work, thus saving the colony from devastation and hunger. Not surprisingly , there is a large monument to him, make sure not to miss it.
