Messed up things that happened during colonial times
The colonial period of American history — began with the first permanent English settlement in Jamestown, Virginia, and ended when the 13 colonies declared their independence from England. Within a year span, the colonies evolved from a scattered group of small English settlements into a united country with people of many nationalities, who were capable of self-government and hungry for complete independence from what they saw as the meddling demands of the mother country—England. In the early days of settlement, the English did not know how to live in the wilderness. George Percy, one of the Jamestown settlers, wrote, "There were never Englishmen left in a foreign country in such misery as we were in this newly discovered Virginia. When the food they had brought from England ran out, many died. They did not know how to hunt in the American forests even though the forests were filled with game. They might have planted gardens, but anyone strong enough to work had to help fortify the town and build houses.
