Craftsmen of the thirties empowered conventional subjects—picture, scene, chronicled, and religious painting—with another tasteful and vision that mirrored their encounters as African Americans, while adding to bigger developments in American workmanship.

The English colonists on Roanoke Island lived in homes near native villages, but after vanishing without a trace, they are now called the Lost Colony. When John White finally returned to Roanoke Island in 1590, the English colony had vanished, and he allegedly found the words 'CRO ' and 'CROATOAN ' carved on two trees. When White saw that, he thought that the colonists got help from the Croatan Indians on Hatteras Island. The Croatans were peaceful and friendly with the settlers, so the English could have a good relationship with them when the colony was established in 1587. There are many theories about what happened to them: one of them is that they managed to integrate themselves with the Croatan people. Similarily, there were around 25

In “The Inheritance of Tools” Scott Russell Sanders recounts his memories of his deceased father. Because most of his memories of his father center on carpentry, Sanders talks frequently about the carpentry tools that were passed from Sanders’s grandfather, to Sanders’s father, to Sanders himself (par. 2). Throughout the essay, Sanders uses the passing down of carpentry tools from generation to generation to symbolize the passing down of tools for life: passions, knowledge, life lessons, memories, and values. With the tools comes the knowledge of how to use them and the passion to do so.
New evidence found at Hatteras Island and Cape Creek, North Carolina proves that this theory has the most merit and is the most probable thing to have happened. In North Carolina, archeologist, Nicholas Lucchetti’s team found an iron bar with a large copper block that's likely from the 16th century not presumed to be Native American origin because they lacked the metal technology at the time.

James Horn’s, “A Land As God Made It”, tells about the hardships and tragedies the settlers faced as they attempted to make a settlement in Jamestown. Before attempting to settle at Jamestown, England tried to permanently settle in Roanoke, off the coast of North Carolina. The colony was “unsuitable because its shallow waters could not accommodate ocean-going vessels” (Horn 2005, 31). Horn says that the failure of the Roanoke colony occurred for many different reasons; one of the main reasons being that it was not a time for success for the colony. Although the colony failed, it gave impact on the future for settlers to start a new settlement (Horn 2005, 33).
