may 14, 1607 - The English found the colony of Jamestown

Description:

The Virginia Company of England funded the building of a colony in the New World, hoping for a profitable result. A perfect spot was found on the James River, and construction started the next day. John Smith became the leader of the colony as a result of organizing a truce and trade routes with the sprawling Algonquin Indian nation that surrounded them.
