A History of the United States. Episode 10 - The Kidnapping of Pocahontas

This week the English decide to kidnapping the Powhatan princess, Pocahontas. We also cover the state of the colony in the 1610s, Pocahontas' trip to England in 1616, the early growth of the tobacco industry (tomacco references aplenty) and look at the creation of the first democratic American institution, Virginia's House of Burgesses.
