It received this name due to the fact that the colonists that settled this colony disappeared very mysteriously. This poses the question of "What happened to the people of Raleigh?" There are many different viewpoints of what occurred to the colon ...

The Success Of England And S Spain In The Colonization Of The New World - 1,169 words
The Success of England and Spain in the Colonization of the New World The success in the colonization of the New World (America) depended of many factors such as the treatment of the natives, the Church, methods of government, the support of the colonists, the role of religion, and also the condition of the country who wanted to colonize. I consider success when you have a goal and you achieve it, or perhaps when you obtain something good . I think that the English were more successful than the Spanish in colonizing the new world because England was more stable that Spain, they had a powerful army, a better economy system and also because Spanish only wanted gold and richness from the coloni ...

Naval Operations During The Civil War - 1,728 words
At the beginning of the Civil War in 1861, there was little reason to suspect that the United States Navy would play a very big role in the war. The Confederate Navy had absolutely no navy, nor did they have the ability to create one. The south did not contain a single plant that could create a marine engine. (Carrison, page #17) The government of the Confederate States got underway in the spring of 1861, totally unprepared from a naval standpoint to uphold the independence it had declared. (Confederate Forces Afloat, page #1) The Confederacy lacked the adequate means to conduct an offensive of defensive war. (http://sunsite.unc.edu/ page 1a) They needed ships to defend its long coastline an ...

The Lost Colony Of Roanoke - 1,275 words
The story of Jamestown was one of America's first documented mysteries. There are clear facts about this voyage that have been documented. In 1587, John White did make a temporary establishment on or near Roanoke Island, and that after leaving for three years did return to the island in 1590. On his return, all traces of the colonist having lived there for those three years had vanished. No Jamestown colonist is known to be seen from again. So what happened to them during those three years? Jamestown, which was led by Governor John White, landed on Roanoke Island between April and late July 1587 and was a royal grantee of Sir Walter Raleigh. Jamestown was a small, self-supporting community t ...

The Lost Colony Of Roanoke - 1,307 words
... the first to do it on record, but found no traces of an English settlement and saw few Indians. On his way back through the Bay he kept close to the shore, and eventually found Roanoke Island. He reported, "on the island shore, on the inside of the little bay I entered, there were signs of slipways (shipyards) for small vessels, and on land a number of wells made with English casks and other debris indicating that a considerable number of people had lived there." Gonzalez saw no one, but did not pause long to look. From this it can be concluded the English colonist had either hid from the Spanish ships or that they were on Croatoan with Mantoe. If they had not moved yet and were hiding t ...
