Before colonists arrived in the present-day Richmond area, it was a very important place for the Native American Powhatan Confederacy. In 1607, British Captain James Smith led an expedition to the James River, and settlers from nearby Jamestown briefly lived in the area shortly thereafter.
However, it wasn't until 1644 that formal European settlement began in Richmond with the establishment of Fort Charles. The colonists developed a working relationship with the native Powhatan inhabitants, trading their goods for animal pelts and tobacco. For the next several decades, Richmond would serve as the setting for many iconic historic events, including Patrick Henry's iconic "Give me liberty or give me death" speech in 1775. It was the site of the passage of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom and was a capital of the Confederacy during the Civil War.
