March 25, 1584 Queen Elizbeth grants a charter to Sir Walter Raleigh to establish the first English colony in the New World. Rather than sailing due west from England and landing in Newfoundland, Raleigh opts to head south, then turn west at the Canary Islands, along the route first established by Columbus. Once in the New World, Raleigh followed the coast north (sailing past Georgia) to Roanoke Island.
