This morning we will tour Jamestown. In 1607, 13 years before the Pilgrims landed in Massachusetts, a group of 104 English men and boys began a settlement on the banks of Virginia's James River. They were sponsored by the Virginia Company of London, whose stockholders hoped to make a profit from the resources of the New World.

Here we will also learn the stories of Captain John Smith, Pocahontas and the influence of Christianity on the people.
