How was Jamestown built?
Jamestown was built in the shape of a triangle with rounded edges and cannons inside the edges.
The Native Americans in and around Jamestown didn’t help them or associate with the men. The fort was built in an Native American empire of 15,000 and there were 104 men in Jamestown. They built the fort on the worse land in the area with mosquitoes and bad water. The local tribes knew this and all they had to do is wait for them to die. Within six months there were only 34 left alive.
The lesson of Jamestown is to go prepared . The men of Jamestown went for the wrong reason, built a fort in the wrong location, and didn't plan very well. This cost them their lives because within 6 months 34 of the 104 were still alive. At some point there will be a colony on the moon and I would hope that the people going would learn the lessons from 200 years ago in Jamestown.
Jamestown In 1607 Jamestown became the first English settlement in North America colonists built a fort near the Jamestown river in present day Virgina. Walls, called palisades, surrounded the fort on all three sides. New excavations of the area will help historians learn more than Jamestown. Archeologists have uncovered parts of the fort walls, the east cannon bulwark, a building, and more than 150,000 objects dating from 1607 to 1610.
Jamestown wasn't discovered it was built by the 104 men who came to look for gold. The fort they built was in a poor spot. The water was bad, there was disease, and they were in an Native American empire of 15,000. Instead of planting crops they looked for gold and the result was within 6 months after arrival 34 men were alive. The city of Jamestown has survived and today people still live in…
Jamestown was an investment opportunity for the men who were sent there to find gold and to come back making the investors rich. The main problem was there was no gold, crops weren't planted, and they built the fort in the worse land in the area with bad water, mosquitos, disease, and 15,000 Native Americans.
It wasn't . Jamestown was an investor venture and the 106 men who went were there to find gold and to get wealthy. The men in charge were military and they built a fort after they landed. This was not an ideal situation since they were in the worse parcel in the area and had landed in a Native American kingdom of 14,000' people.
