Account of the rescue attempt at RoanokeFailure of spanish florida If you were to recount the earliest European presence in North America as a history of the "proto-United States," you might start with Columbus injump to Jamestown inand treat the intervening years as a few decades.
It is true there was little European presence in the midregion in the s, due primarily to the disappointing forays into Parte Incognita that revealed no golden cities or Edenic sanctuaries, not even a water passage through the continent to Asia.
In addition, many of the first attempts at settlement north of the Caribbean failed. A hurricane destroyed the first Pensacola settlement. Frigid winters and scurvy claimed several settlements; starving settlers abandoned others. Indians laid siege to settlements or attacked them outright.
Rebellion by brutalized soldiers or starved African slaves ended two colonies. Settlers were left to their own resources when the founders left for provisions or for good. Most share the dooming factors of poor planning and unrealistic appraisals of the North American environment.
Simply put, settling this continent was not going to be easy. Especially with the added obstacle of rival Europeans. By the late s the Spanish and French found themselves closer to each other's claims on the southeast Atlantic coast, and word had it that the English would soon join the competition.
Attack-by-rival became another cause of failed colonies. The Spanish massacred the French Huguenots near Florida in and sent spies to Jamestown in to determine if eradicating the fledgling colony was its best move. The imperial rivalries that would coalesce in the s were taking shape.
These selections focus on three failed settlements on the southeast Atlantic coast, one Spanish, one French, and one English. The end comes from European attack, Indian attack, and "unknown.
French Huguenots Protestants established this small settlement in on the southeast Atlantic coast, just north of the site where the Spanish would build St.
Augustine a year later partly to protect its Atlantic shipping corridor from the French encroachment.
Who would attack the other first? They planned attacks simultaneously, but the Spanish succeeded after the French ships en route to St.
Augustine were destroyed by a hurricane. We combine excerpts from two accounts of the attack: Nine Jesuit missionaries founded this settlement in on Chesapeake Bay, near the site where Jamestown was founded thirty-seven years later.
They soon faced food shortages and demanded provisions from the Powhatan Indians. In this letter, they plead to the treasurer of Cuba for a shipment of corn to sustain them through the winter.
Several months later, the Powhatans destroyed the mission and killed the men. Although the "Lost Colony" is a staple of historical lore, few have read John White's poignant account of the attempted rescue of the colonists in Governor of the settlement on the Outer Banks, White had returned to England for supplies soon after the colonists' arrival.
Delayed for three years by war with Spain and pirates from France, White finally returned to the colony in but found only scattered possessions, the word "Croatoan" and a Maltese cross carved into a tree, and no people.
The search itself led to more hardship and death. John White into the West Indies and Parts of America called Virginia, in the year] These accounts will flesh out, so to speak, the year span between Columbus and Jamestown.
