Captain John Smith
by: sierra-Rose F.
He had a bold leadership, he also had military experience, and also his determination brought discipline to the dissolute colonists. ““The Wars in Europe, Asia, and Africa,” he later boasted, “taught me how to subdue the wild Salvages in … America.”” In the years of 1607-1608 Smith was a member of the colony. He got to explore Chesapeake’s geography and ethnology. Smith also mapped Chesapeake. Hunting & exploration expeditions around the area were led by Smith. Jamestown, Virginia elected John Smith council president. Also he explored the New England coast. Until Smith died, he was the most prolific and insistent champion for British America. April 1614 Smith was captured by pirates, but escaped three months later. After being captured he later returned to England. Smith died in 1631.
