Success through hard work came to the first colonists of Virginia

Join this blog for more interesting information about the first patriots to Virginia whose sacrifices and actions led a path to the freedom which ultimately resulted in the American Dream.

Silver porringer made during Charles II when Jamestown was being settled.
English merchants acquired wealth through hard work and diligence, despite the politics and class-distinctions surrounding them.  Thus, their children were in the trades and did not migrate penniless. They brought over with them the necessary means to help build an economy. Following the example of their fathers, they dreamed of success and went to work implementing it.  Virginia was a promising community for persons without capital, who were ready to earn a subsistence by working with their bare hands. Contrastly, those who figured to earn a fortune with their wits, did not succeed.
