Dalia was alone at home when she opened the heavy green iron gate with the large heavy iron key which seemed to have always been there. The three young men stood shyly dressed in suits and ties in the summer heat. Dalia could sense their insecurity. On an inner impulse, or intuition perhaps, Dalia smiled and said “come in”..

The fact that it was winter was not going to stop Grant from continuing to push the Confederacy toward extinction. While the Armies of the Potomac and the James facing Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia remained relatively quiet, there was action on other fronts. The prime mover was Sherman who had reached Savannah at Christmas and was planning to move north into the Carolinas. Grant approved Sherman’s plans by the middle of January and he would begin his Carolina Campaign at the end of the month. National Register nomination process in Georgia.

Did Jamestown’s Settlers Drink Themselves to Death? - History in the Headlines

By the following spring, after a horrific winter that became known as the “starving time,” all but 60 had perished. Four hundred years later, historians can only speculate about the causes of this massive population collapse, which nearly snuffed out the first permanent English settlement in North America.

Life was no picnic for the Jamestown colony’s earliest founders, but at least they had enough to eat. But in the fall of 1609, shortly after the arrival of new ships packed with more mouths to feed, a disastrous sequence of events plunged Jamestown into famine, said Whittenburg.
