In 1607, the Virginia Company of London arrived on the banks of the Powhatan River, establishing Jamestown. The years that followed were marked by starvation, disease, and conflict, yet the people persevered. Today, Jamestown is known as the first permanent settlement by the English in the US. Still, the early years full of strife led to the death of many of the settlers. Could there have been a better way for the people of Jamestown to survive? Just like how the settlers had to figure out how to set up a society from scratch, this Beginners Crisis will be a wonderful chance for new delegates to learn about Crisis Committees and try their hand at creating a surviving settlement with a history to be told for years to come.
