Jamestown Lecture Two : Tobacco , Strife , and Quest Supremacy
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning ( GMALL ) welcomes Dr . John Delano for the second talk of this three-part series on the history of the Jamestown colony . The talk will take place on December 9 from 5:30 to 7pm via Zoom video conference . Jamestown was largely an investor-driven enterprise by the London Company that sought profitable enterprises in the New World . Despite the appalling conditions and absence of valuable minerals , immigration to Jamestown was encouraged by the London Company ( until the loss of its charter in 1624 ) through strong public relations campaigns that extolled financial rewards and religious virtues . The English believed that the success of Jamestown depended on being worthy in God ’ s eyes of persevering against the Devil ’ s efforts ( e . g ., attacks by the Powhatan Indians ). The concept of ‘ res nullius ’ adopted by the English was a precursor to the 19th century policy of Manifest Destiny . Registration is $ 18 in advance .
