The colonization between the English in Virginia started with Jamestown, which was the first British colony in America and was established in 1607. The British then assigned J…ohn Smith as their governor and leader. John Smith often took voyages, exploring the land. Even with Smith's rigorous leadership, life in Jamestown was hard, and the colonists were dying. When it was colonized, Jamestown was simply a swamp full of mosquitoes carrying the deadly disease known as malaria. With summers very hot (much more than Britain) and winters very cold, the colonists almost left the colony. Soon, the colony grew and grew, and they pushed the Native Americans back and back into the edges of their lands. After many years, the colonization of the English grew into 13 colonies, which covered most of the Eastern Coast and land near it. During the 1700s, the Parliament (the British government) released the Stamp Act, which were expensive taxes on paper, tea, and other things. After a group of colonists started to rebel against the taxes, the Parliament then released more taxes. This caused more colonists to rebel. This eventually turned into the Revolutionary War. To put it simple, there were three sides- the patriots, the neutrals, and the loyalists. After the end of the war, America earned independence and broke away from the British. So then the British lost control over Virginia and all the other colonies.
