T is for Tobacco

When the first settlers came to Virginia… in Jamestown …..they were lured with promises of finding gold and owning their own land. What they soon found out was that while beautiful, it was tough living. Summer brought blistering heat, and winter bitter cold. Typhoid outbreaks and Indian attacks threatened their health and safety. What saved the Jamestown settlers? Most would say, a good leader in Jamestown council president, Captain John Smith…. And most assuredly, tobacco.
