Exam Week: Bacon's Rebellion

This written narration is by Cornflower, 3rd grade, AO Year 3. I corrected spelling and punctuation for ease of reading on the blog.

Question: What do you know about the colony of Virginia?

The colony of Virginia was attacked many times, but rebuilt. Then one day they attacked but the governor ignored the Indians. So a man named Bacon went and fought the Indians. He won. But next thing he knew he was in the House of Burgesses. The governor asked, "What did you do?"

"Fight for my colony."

"WITHOUT PERMISSION!!!" [Caps in original]

So Bacon was thrown in prison and Mr. Berkeley, the governor, resigned. And many people were hung for helping Bacon.
