Jamestown Settlers are a type of infantry in Empire: Total War.
The inhibitants of colonial towns must sometimes take up arms to defend themselves.
Self-defence was a part of life in Elizabethian and Jacobean England. A man expected to look after his family and property as the local parish constables were not necessarily a reliable police force. In some parishes the constables were either old men, or non-existant. Men were also expected to join the local fencibles or trained bands, a militia for the defence of the kingdom in times of trouble. Skill-at-arms was therefore not unknown in the general population, and these skills were taken to the New World by the colonists. In times of tension with the native tribes, the fact that the colonists could, if needs must, protect themselves, was useful.
Jamestown settlers are available only in Chapter I of the Road to Independence campaign. Numerous and strong, they are well-suited to fighting the tribesmen of the Powhatan Confederacy.
