Virginia’s history began with the settlement of Native Americans. The Natives were joined by English settlers in 1607, when Jamestown was established. The early settlement struggled until the mighty cash crop, tobacco, proved to be a profitable export. Virginia became the wealthiest and most populated British colony in North America. Virginian planters had a major role in the governing of the states, playing roles in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitutional Convention, and the Bill of Rights.
