jan 1, 1619 - "King James I grants lands to the Virginia Company of London, later called Virginia. Thousands of settlers are drawn by tobacco, and the company grants 100 acres to every freeman and more to those who import servants. First convened in 1619, the House of Burgesses is given the power to make laws and levy takes, yet actions could be vetoed by a governor and the company council. The promise of land ownership and self-government attracts many."
