Discovering America Podcast

This podcast will be a history narrative collected from various sources.  I will be covering the stories of events and people that played a part in creating America.  My goal is to give the listener an entertaining dialog of history and walk away (or ear away) with a, “I didn’t know that”, feeling.

The storehouse was in pretty bad shape. The colonists would go through the starving time. Even with the arrival of several ships, surviving another winter looked bleak. Jamestown was abandoned but, just in the nick of time just over the horizon, came new hope to restart it all, Jamestown.
