Early Colonial settlers and terrible winters

This Weather topic submitted by (michelle@homeloancentral.com) on 4/3/02.

I was wondering why the people in the 17th century were having so many problems settleing in America and growing their own food, does the problem also have to do with the fact that the sun had less sun spots at this time, and did this have any effect on the early American Colonies?
Also how were the Indians effected?
