Who chose Roanoke Island for England's first settlement in North America?
Is it fact or opinion that Roanoke island was an ideal place for englands first colony in north America and why or why not?
The 1587 group was deposited at Roanoke Island and the reasons for that are unclear. They were supposed to go further north to the Chesapeake to found their settlement. A "gentleman" on board made the decision to leave the settlers at Roanoke Island. The identity of the gentleman who made that decision has never been made.
