December 20, 1606, three merchant ships loaded with passengers and cargo embarked from England on a voyage.

The Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery reached Virginia in the spring of 1607. Building on the banks of the James River 104 men and boys started what would be known as Jamestown (approximately10 minutes from the current day location). 

It predated the Plymouth Colony by 13 years. They endured many hardships and brought with them the beginnings of a country. 

Throughout United State's history many influential people have come out of Virginia. Perhaps the most notable being Thomas Jefferson, the writer of the Declaration of Independence. This document established the foundations of this country and began what would be the greatest nation on earth.
