Jamestown and Native Conflict

Information on Jamestown and its origination and the conflicts with the Native people

Jamestown created the headright system, which dictated that any man who paid his passage to Virginia would receive 50 acres of land. A man would also receive another 50 acres for every servant he brought over as well. These servants were named “Indentured Servants”, they received no pay, but they did receive a little bit of food, tools, clothing, and shelter, but it was the bare minimum to keep them alive. A term of indenture lasted 4-7 years, and even though it seems like a short amount of time, it was risky because most newcomers coming to America died in about 5 years. Most servants were poor whites, with nothing to lose after they left England. Race was not as much of a factor until later, as there were some black indentured servants. They switched from indentured servants to enslaved Africans, because slaves were a longer-term source of labor and they could make more profit off of them.
