Program Description

How can primary sources illuminate historical events? This workshop tells the story of Jamestown, a less-than-successful example of America’s capitalist beginnings and a colony as a business operation. Drawing on contemporary accounts, workshop participants assume the roles of colonists and shareholders to argue the future of the Virginia Company’s settlement at Jamestown.
