America: Love It or Leave It!

July 29, 2019

On December 6, 1606, the journey to Virginia began on three ships: the Susan Constant, the Godspeed, and the Discovery. In 1607, 104 English men and boys arrived in North America to start a settlement. And so it began. On July 30, 1619, newly appointed Governor Yeardley called for the first representative legislative assembly. This was the beginning of representative government that is now the Virginia House of Delegates. Despite enormous adversity, the settlers stayed the course or died trying. Read more here....
