I love mapping out the coast, I hope I find a route to the pacific!
I finally conquered the aztecs!!!!!
So there isn't a city of gold, but there are buffalo, villagaes, and land!
Pineda was known for making the first map of the coast of Texas. He was supposed to also find a route to the Pacific, but wasn't able to. He was the first to observe the coast.
Cabeza de Vaca
I can help you with medicine and health, just keep me alive!!!
Cortez wanted gold, glory, and god for Spain. He wasn't in Texas. He conquered the Aztecs and was the first " governor" of New Spain ( mexico). He inspired otheres for more exploring of North America.
I claim this land for the French, this should be known as Fort st. Louis!
Coronado was an explorer. He explored Texas to see if the myths of the " gold city" were true or false. Turns out the " gold cities" were just adobe brick. Coranado found tons of miles of grass and buffalo and villages of some tribes.
I think I've found the...... new world!!!!
Cabeza de Vaca shipwrecked and got stranded in Texas while looking for gold in Florida. He met the karankawas and stayed alive by being helpful of the tribe. he helped treat the wounded, was the 1st explorer, and the first author with relacion. He told tales of the "gold cities" (adobe brick)
La Salle ended up in Texas on accident, he was looking for the mississippi river. He and his crew made the Fort St. Louis and claimed it for the French for 2 years, but unfortunately his crew murdered him. After the Spanish realized the French were claiming land in Texas, they grew more serious about settling there.
Columbus didn't go to Texas. He failed to find a faster route to India but did open up the new world to Europe. His impact on Texas was that he started Spanish exploration in North America.
