Description The Jamestown settlement in the Colony of Virginia was the first permanent English settlement in the Americas. William Kelso says Jamestown "is where the British Empire began ... this was the first colony in the British Empire. " Established by the Virginia Company of London as "James Fort" on May 4, 1607 (O.S., May 14, 1607 N.S. ), and considered permanent after brief abandonment in 1610, it followed several earlier failed attempts, including the Lost Colony of Roanoke. Jamestown served as the capital of the colony for 83 years, from 1616 until 1699.
Paul Revere shouted throughout his midnight ride, “The Regulars are coming!” He was an American Patriot in the American Revolution who lived in Boston at the time. His lifespan was from 1735 to 1818, during the American Revolution. One of his famous quotes was “In Medford, I awakened the Captain of the Minutemen; and after that, I alarmed almost every house, till I got to Lexington.” Paul Revere is important to history because if he didn't warn Lexington about the British, America itself might not be known as America. Paul Revere was born January 1, 1735, in Boston, Massachusetts. His father was Apollos Rivoire, a French immigrant who came to America on his own at the age of 13, and Deborah Hichborn, a Boston native and the daughter of an artisan family Paul was important to history because he saved a lot of lives by warning Lexington about the British and that they were coming.

In “The Captive Exile Hasteth,” William J. Scheick exemplifies the content that the colonists showed towards English law. At a particular point in his work, Scheick explains, “the attraction to England, as the traditional center of cultural authority remained strong among Puritan colonists” (Scheick 183). As the essay progresses, he begins to approach a different side. Scheick writes about how Charles II, the king of England in the late 1600’s, brought on a shadow of displeasure among the colonists. After an incident regarding the loss of the Massachusetts Bay Charter, “the Puritan colonies felt increasingly isolated” (Scheick 185).
Jefferson wrote pieces of literature like the "Summary View of the Rights of British America," and the Declaration of Independence. He was an amazing writer During and After the Revolutionary War: During the War, Jefferson served as a governor of Virginia. When he was almost captured by the British, He fled and barely escaped.

Speaker: The speaker of this sermon is John Winthrop. Winthrop was a wealthy male Englishmen, lawyer, and Puritan who ventured towards the New World.

Occasion: Winthrop was a first-generation colonist and a Puritan.
“for wee must consider that wee shall be as a City upon a Hill, that the eies of all people are upon us,” ( Winthrop “City Upon the Hill” 11 ) such was the foundation for the Puritans model religious city in the New World. In 1629 the British Parliament, composed heavily of Puritans, was dissolved when King Charles II decided that he had the right to rule through a concept known as divine right. Angered by this decision along with tensions that had been building over many years pushed around nine hundred Puritans to the New World with the goal of creating a perfect religious haven. While the Puritans beliefs did influence America in various ways including culture and political bases America has moved far from John Winthrops perfect utopia. This movement, however, should not be viewed as a bad development for the nation.
