In the late 1600's, Queen Elizabeth I of England wants to establish a colony in North America, but mother nature has all odds against the colonist. When Spain plans an attack, England uses tactics to gain control. This triumph led to England colonizing North America, but the disappearance of the lost colony of Roanoke is still a mystery.
