Extractions: April 05, 2002 S hips of Exploration The most well known shipwrecks in the Gulf of Mexico come from a more recent time period, but ships have sailed these waters since the 16th century. Many of these early vessels foundered or ran aground. Though documentation of their exact location is rarely accurate, several of these wrecks, ranging in date from the 16 th through the 18 th centuries, have been identified throughout the Gulf. Em anuel Point Shipwreck One of the earliest shipwrecks discovered in the Gulf of Mexico was located in Pensacola Bay, Florida, in 1992. The site was identified during a remote sensing survey by archaeologists with the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research. Over the last nine years researchers from the University of West Florida have conducted underwater excavations of the vessel. They hypothesize that the wreck is the lower hull of a Spanish vessel that dates to the Tristan de Luna expedition of 1559. Analysis of the magnetic signature of this early shipwreck has provided the MMS with valuable comparative data for the review and analysis of shallow hazard and archaeological survey reports. L aSalle Shipwreck Project One of the most significant underwater archaeological finds in North America was made by a team from the Texas Historical Commission (THC) in 1995 in 12 feet of water in Matagorda Bay, Texas. After the team recovered a distinctive bronze cannon bearing the crest of Louis XIV they hypothesized that the vessel was the French ship

Extractions: Rene Robert Cavalier, Sieur de La Salle, was born in France in 1643. He was educated by the Jesuits, and planned to enter the priesthood. However, in an age of discovery the lure of exploration led young La Salle to the uncharted regions of Canada where he received a royal land grant. La Salle established a fur trading outpost and, through trade with the Indians, gained an unquenchable thirst for exploration. He, like countless adventurers before and after him, became convinced that a trade route to the Orient was possible through a Northwest Passage to the Pacific. By 1669, he had sold his land and set out to explore the Ohio river valley. La Salle found a supporter in the Count de Frontenac, the "Fighting Governor" of New France. Together they sought to expand French holdings in the region by building a fort on Lake Ontario (Fort Frontenac). This move was calculated to increase French control over the Iroquois Indians and give them a monopoly over the area's fur trade. Frontenac recommended that La Salle be instated as seigneur, asserting that La Salle was the man most capable of helping France fulfill its ambitious plans for exploration and discovery in the New World. King Louis XIV not only appointed him governor but granted La Salle a title of nobility. Although La Salle proved to be a good businessman, by 1677 he had grown bored of fur-trading and went to France to ask that Louis XIV give him authorization to explore and secure the western portions of France's New World holdings. Though La Salle's ventures had the official support of the Crown he received no royal funding, forcing him to borrow large sums of money in both Montreal and Paris.

Extractions: La Salle set up a fur trading outpost and began learning more about the territories. Through trade with Indians he learned new languages and heard tales of the New World. He became convinced a trade route to the Orient was possible through the rivers and lakes of the Western frontier. By 1669, he sold his land and set out to explore the Ohio region. Although originally given credit for discovering the Ohio River, historians now question the validity of this claim. La Salle found a supporter in the Count de Frontenac, the "Fighting Governor" of New France, the French possessions in Canada. Together, they sought to expand on French holdings in the territories by setting up a fort on Lake Ontario, Fort Frontenac. Now, not only would they have more power over the Iroquois Indians, but they would also control the fur trade between the Upper Lakes and the Dutch and English coastal settlements. Their objectives were not well received. The traders in Montreal were afraid of losing their livelihood, and the Jesuit priests were afraid of losing influence with the Indians. La Salle and Frontenac won out. Fort Frontenac was built near present-day Kingston.

We included reports on nineteen explorers, chosen by members of our team. We organized the explorers on separate "Hall of Fame" and "Timeline" web pages, so that users can look for a particular explorer by name or by century. We have a links page to help students find other helpful Web sites that relate to the explorers selected. A quiz section gives visitors a chance to see what they know about some of our explorers. A feedback page invites visitors to submit their own nominations for our Explorers' Hall of Fame. We hope that a visit to "Explorers of the Millennium" will answer students' questions about explorers, lead them to new sources of information, and encourage them to think critically about which explorers were the "greatest" and why.

Extractions: De Soto, Marquette, Cadillac, et al ) René Robert Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle is the most tragic figure in the history of Mississippi exploration. He had the greatest vision ...combined with the worst luck. La Salle dreamed of a French "empire" on the American continent stretching from Quebec to New Orleans, to the Appalachians east and to the Rockies west, encompassing the entire basin of the Mississippi, Ohio and Missouri rivers. At the time, most Canadians believed that La Salle suffered from delusions of grandeur or was gone mad from a solitary life in the forests.

Extractions: The Texas saga of Rene Robert, Seiur de la Salle began near Matagorda Bay and ended much closer to East Texas. LaSalle led the first French exploration through the interior of the continent all the way to the mouth of the Mississippi River in 1682, then won approval to plant a permanent colony there. A colony would tie down both ends of the continent's eastern waterways for France. When LaSalle returned in 1684 with his colonists, he landed about 400 miles west of the Mississippi. Whether this reflected poor navigation or simple ignorance of New World topography is debated yet. From his previous exploration of the Mississippi River, he knew that the river divided into many streams near the Gulf of Mexico. Extant records indicate that at first he regarded Matagorda Bay as the western mouth of the "Colbert" River, the original French name for the Mississippi. Explorations convinced LaSalle that his assumption was false and that his plantation, known as Fort St. Louis, lay far to the west of his intended destination. LaSalle also made mistakes in recruiting for the adventure. Too many "gentlemen," or those unaccustomed to work, composed the colony. Faced with failure, LaSalle left most of his colonists ensconced in the palisaded Fort St. Louis and traveled eastward with just a few men to try to reach other French outposts. Along the way, LaSalle was ambushed and killed by Pierre Duhaut, one of his countrymen, near a Hasinai village on March 19, 1687. So the mystery is not "who dun it" but "where did he do it?"

Through reading, writing, and research, students examine how European explorers extended what was known about their world. Using a journal, students put themselves in the role of a fifteenth or sixteenth century explorer, examining daily life at that period and forces that motivated these men. Students make oral presentations about individual explorers after researching their lives and daily life at that time. The unit culminates with students preparing and delivering a persuasive speech expressing a position regarding who discovered America. Unit Title : Exploration Grade Level/Course Title : Fifth Grade/Continued Development of English Language Arts Focus Questions Why do people explore? What personal characteristics and attributes do explorers have in common? How has exploration of the Americas influenced life today?
