Additional Details:
Jamestown was the first permanent English settlement within the limits of the United States and was founded in 1607 by a small company under the leadership of Captain Newport. The settlers landed on May 14th, sent out exploring parties and began to build fortifications. The first attack from the Indians occurred within a fortnight and resulted in a victory for the colonists. In 1619 the first legislative assembly in America was held at Jamestown, and here in the same year slavery was first introduced into the original thirteen colonies
