It's nice to know that Polish people were in Jamestowne, but in this context it almost seems silly. Everwill

Important History

Posted this on the Virginia page before I got here, but: Jamestown Settlement is celebrating it's 400th anniversary this year. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip are visiting and spending time touring. Might want to include something about this. Jrssr5 16:27, 26 April 2007 (EDT)

Questions

There are 2 sections that are suspect. Please provide specific references for forcing the Native Populations to give them corn through threats and that most indentured servants died before they became free. 38 starving people including women and children usually don't bully much larger tribes with threats and if conditions were so disease ladened that new workers would die in under 7 years, then how come the colonists didn't all die off as well?

Please note that because of the stretched nature of these claims, sources should point to original documents, not just a book or article making the claims. Thank you Learn together 15:13, 19 June 2007 (EDT)


Giving this more thought, I'm going to remove those passages and they can be put back when sourcing from the time period is found. It seems that keeping them as is could only hurt Conservapedia. Learn together 21:06, 19 June 2007 (EDT)
