Pocahontas and Virginia's Uniqueness
By Ann Cherian
  

1     Virginia is outstanding as a state because this state is the place where the United States of America began. The first English settlement that continued and did not die was in Jamestown, Virginia. It was started in the year 1607. Even though Jamestown had a difficult beginning, someone always helped the Jamestown settlers through hard times.
 
2     One helpful person was Pocahontas. She was a Native American girl from the Powhatan tribe. Her father was the tribe's chief. Pocahontas did so much for the people in Jamestown. Many times she brought them food when they were very hungry. Pocahontas was the first Native American in an English colony to become a Christian. When she became a Christian, she changed her name to Rebecca. She also learned how to speak English very quickly and learned about the ways of the English people.
 
3     Pocahontas helped keep peace between her people, the Powhatan Indians, and the settlers in Jamestown. When she married John Rolfe, their marriage joined the two groups together, and there was peace for many years.
