Exploring the Virginia Colony by Christin Ditchfield

Step back in time and visit America's 13 Colonies. Explore the people, places, and history of each colony from New Hampshire to Georgia. Find out what made each colony unique and the common bonds that tied them all together. Virginia was home to the first permanent English settlement in America. The first settlers faced a lack of food and conflicts with Native Americans, but eventually more colonists flocked to Virginia for farming opportunities. Find out what role Virginia played during the Revolutionary War and what daily life was like in Colonial times and the early days of statehood.
