As they set sail from London to the distant shores of America in December 1606, the men and boys onboard the Susan Constant, the Godspeed, and the Discovery surely expected the best from their adventure. They'd establish a British settlement, find gold and silver, a passage to the Orient, and, perhaps, the lost colony of Roanoke.
