James Town is [in my opinion] where America first started. After the race to find new land and colonies it. Great Britain had started a successful colony. With the first commander being John Smith. Who whipped the settlers into shape by starting new policies like the "No work no eat" policy. And of course since James Town is settled in Virginia it made it a great place to grow crops starting the cash crop Tobacco. Which brought new settlers ,and a booming economy.
In 1803 president Jefferson made an offer to buy New Orleans and the pan handle of Florida from France for $10,000,000 So, they could be able to travel through the Mississippi River freely. France then counter offered with adding another $5,000,000 for an extra part of land they had ,called the Louisiana Territory. We would soon find out in 2 years that this land would double the size of our country at the time.
