Interesting Fact:

More than two decades before English colonists arrived at Jamestown, Virginia to establish the first permanent English settlement in North America, Sir Walter Raleigh organized several attempts to establish a colony on Roanoke Island, North Carolina. Encouraged by the explorations of Sir Humphrey Gilbert, Raleigh obtained a charter for establishing a New World settlement south of Newfoundland.
