  • I think we're close to land!
  • We shall claim this land for Spain and call it La Florida
  • De Soto and his army go out on an exploration for Spain in search of gold.
  • Do you know where I can find the gold?
  • De Soto gets to what is now Florida and causes Spain to have their first permanent settlement known as St. Augustine.
  • How could they!!
  • De Soto and his men were the first to cross the Mississippi River and brought both horses and pigs.
  • Is he dead?
  • De Soto meets the Native Americans and asks them about the gold.
  • De Soto and his men ate most of the Native's food supply which caused famine and death. They also spread deadly diseases. These both caused a major decrease in population.
  • De Soto dies due to a fever and the exploration is labeled a failure due to not getting any gold.
