Fueled by ambitions of making a fortune, common workers and “gentlemen” from London, England set off for the New World where many would lose their lives to famine, disease, and “on and off” attacks by Indians and would find that claims of finding wealth in the New World were false. One can conclude that greediness among gentlemen resulted in most of their deaths since the word ‘gentlemen’ connotes a formal, relatively wealth man with higher social status. Ironically, after King James authorized The Virginia Company passage into the New World, people with dreams of striking it rich either paid or worked in order to travel with the first charter, a fleet of boats the Virginia Company created under the authorization of King James to travel to the Americas. One primary objective of this voyage involved maintaining good relations with the natives, according to a set of instructions the English monarchy created. Before embarking on the Virginia Company’s first charter, the English Court created multiple sets of instructions which the settlers read at different times during the trip. In the set read promptly after arriving in Chesapeake Bay, King James stressed the importance of coexisting peacefully with the natives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
