Extractions: Francisco Pizarro was born in Trujillo, Estremadura, Spain in about 1471 and died in Lima Peru on June 26, 1541. He was the illegitimate son of Gonzalo Pizarro, an infantry captain, and Francisca Gonzalez. Francisco never went to school, and never learned to read or write. He sailed to the New World with Alonzo de Ojeda, on November 10, 1509 and was with him on his discoveries of present day Venezuela and Colombia. When Ojeda founded the city of San Sebastian, in Colombia, Pizarro, was left in charge of the settlement while Ojeda went to Española for supplies and re-enforcements. Due to sickness, lack of food and supplies, and hostile natives, the colony soon started leaving, and Pizarro went to Cartagena. At Cartagena, he joined the expedition of Martin Fernández de Encíso , who had left Española with supplies for the colony of San Sebastian. This was the same expedition, that Vasco Nuñez de Balboa had stowed away on. From Cartagena, the fleet sailed on to San Sebastian. While there, they had problems with the hostility of the local inhabitants, and Balboa suggested that they move across the bay, to a place where the natives did not have poison arrows, and were friendlier.

Extractions: If you are looking for information about a specific explorer, go to our Explorers - A to Z bonus page to access an indexed list of over 150 biography and information sites - - too many to fit on this page. Easier - There have always been explorers. Explorers are people who travel to or investigate unknown places. In traveling, they make or follow a route, path, or trail. Prehistoric men and women who ventured out across the continents were among the first explorers. Harder - Explorers are usually thought of as people who purposely visit and study an unknown geographic area. The golden age of exploration began in the fifteenth century as sailors from Europe ventured out and explored the world, locating routes across its oceans and continents and defining the earth's physical shape, size, and positions. Today however, explorers are persons who systematically search, examine, and investigate for the purpose of discovering unknowns in all aspects of our universe; making new discoveries and expanding frontiers in science, medicine, technology, and our environment.
Humanities-Interactive The New World Exhibitions Art in a Colonial Kingdom The encounter of francisco pizarro and the minute streamingmedia slideshow focuses on the Spanish exploration of the new world. http://www.humanities-interactive.org/newworld/
Extractions: In the month of August 1498, Christopher Columbus arrived at the Paria peninsula, off the northern coast of South America, close to the mouth of the great Orinoco River, and declared that he was seeing "un Otro Mundo, un Nuevo Mundo." These words signify a turning point in human history, when the world was enlarged beyond all imagining, and knowledge of the New World was born. Using archival documents, paintings and maps, along with modern views of historical settings, this exhibit recreates the world and life of Christopher Columbus, the Genoese. More than one hundred years before the first English colony was founded at Jamestown in 1607, Spanish explorers and settlers had established a network of thriving communities in the Caribbean and were preparing to embark on a spectacular enterprise to conquer and colonize much of the Western Hemisphere. Sustained by their profound faith in their goals, they created - and recorded in countless documents - a complex texture of social, economic, and cultural systems. Peru Mestizo: Life and Art in a Colonial Kingdom The encounter of Francisco Pizarro and the Inca in the Andean highlands of Peru changed everything-forever. It led to a new people, a new culture, a new Christianity, an American synthesis of vision and values, and a unique school of art that flourished for three centuries. You are now invited to a very special encounter of your own with Peru Mestizo: Life and Art in a Colonial Kingdom.
Spanish Exploration After Columbus After Columbus opened up the new world to Europe, the West Indies became centersof exploration. him had engaged to sail francisco pizarro and Hernando http://www.publicbookshelf.com/public_html/The_Great_Republic_By_the_Master_Hist
Extractions: Columbus made four voyages in all to the New World, discovering the South American continent near the mouth of the Orinoco in the third, and reaching Honduras and the coast to the south of this region in the fourth. To the day of his death he continued under the delusion that the land he had reached was the eastern extremity of Asia. Other voyagers quickly followed. Ojeda, who had already visited Hispaniola with Columbus, sailed on his own account and explored four hundred leagues of the coast of South America in the region already discovered by Columbus. He was accompanied by Amerigo Vespucci, who made three subsequent voyages to America and wrote the first account of it that was published. This was in a Latin work printed in 1507 and prepared by a German scholar, Martin Waldseemuller, who proposed the name of America for the new continent. The suggestion was universally accepted, and Columbus lost the honor of giving his name to the New World. Other voyagers were Pedro Alonzo Nigno, who sailed to the same region of South America and passed from the Gulf of Paria to the shores of the present republic of Colombia, and Vincent Yanez Pinzon, who had commanded one of the vessels of Columbus on his first voyage, and who was the first Spaniard to cross the equinoctial line. He discovered the mouth of the Amazon River, and from there sailed north to the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. About the same time (1499) Diego Lope reached the coast of South America at Cape St. Augustine, which he doubled and sailed to the southwest for a considerable distance. In 1500, Rodrigo Bastides touched South America at Cape Vela, and coasted to the present seaport of Nombre de Dios, a point which Columbus had reached in sailing south from Honduras.

Extractions: Unit 9: Exploration / The Americas Columbus in the New World The voyages of Christopher Columbus initiated the European exploration of the Americas. The following selections come from a letter written by Columbus upon his return from the New World. After landing in Lisbon in March 1493, Columbus sent a letter describing his discoveries to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. In the letter, Columbus describes the geography and people of the islands that he believed were in the "Indian Sea." The letter was first published in Barcelona and immediately went into multiple editions, becoming one of Europe's earliest "bestsellers." Eleven editions were published in 1493 alone. Columbus Discovers the New World Columbus's letter announcing his findings in the New World was printed along with images that illustrated his discoveries. This print depicts the inhabitants of the New World as Columbus saw them. Cortes Describes Aztec Sacrifices, 1521 Hernan Cortes (1485-1546) and his troops managed in a short time to invade Mexico and topple the Aztec civilization there, culminating in the 1523 destruction of the capital of Tenochtitlan. Cortes arrived on the mainland of Mexico as a rebel against both the governor of Cuba and the king of Spain, but he won back royal support after his conquests. In this selection taken from a letter to the Spanish king, Cortes described Aztec human sacrifices and suggested that he conquer the people in the name of Christianity. Fusing description, flattery, and a belief in the power of European civilization, this letter represents an ideal window into the mind of the Spanish conquistador.
Conquistadors In The New And Old World the objects of the voyage were exploration and discovery of one of the greatestempires of the new world. We know far less about francisco pizarro than we do http://linux1.tlc.north.denver.k12.co.us/~gmoreno/gmoreno/Conquistadors.html
Extractions: Denver Museum of Natural History 1492 was perhaps the most momentous year in all of Spainish history. Under the leadership of Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile, Spain was united for the first time in 800 years and the last of the Moors had just been sucessfully defeated at Granada. In this same year under the urging of Torquemada, master of the Inquisition, an edict had been issued expelling the Jews from Spain. In addition, after six long years of waiting around the periphery of the royal court, Christopher Columbus had finally been given permission to set sail westward to search for the riches of the east Indies. The final battle was fought at Granada. It had been preceeded by the fall of two other major centers of Arab rule in the south, Malaga and Baza, which had weakened Granada's will to resist. The seige of this great fortress city began in April of 1491 and on Jan.2,1492, Granada surendered and the beautiful capital city opened its gates to the Spainards. Spain was on the Threshold of a new period of discovery amd nationalism. This fervent religious crusade of Christian against Moslem had taken 800 years to complete and the centuries of constant fighting had created a pool of soldiers and a mounted nobility that were little more than warlords. These men born to the saddle and the sword and acustomed to booty and living off the land, still burnedwith the wild religious fervour that had led to the victory over the Moors. When in 1492 the last battles had finally been won, conquistadors of the Spanish crusade were suddenly unemployed. These were men with little to lose and much to gain by adventuring in the New Worlds encountered by Columbus.
Extractions: Bristol Mariners seem to have visited Canada in the 1480s, and Christopher Columbus may have learned of, and been inspired by, their voyages. In 1492, William Ayers, an Irishman undoubtedly familiar with English activities, sailed with Columbus on the Santa Maria. In 1497 and 1498 John Cabot, like Columbus a Genoese expatriate, explored eastern Canada under the English flag. By 1502 Englishmen were trading in Newfoundland and parts south, and organizing syndicates, some involving Azorean Portuguese, to exploit the fisheries there. England did not miss the entire European rediscovery of the Western Hemisphere, but did retire early. While England slept, Spain became dominant in the New World and on the high seas. In 1493, during his second voyage, Columbus founded Isabela, the first permanent Spanish settlement in the New World, on Hispaniola. After finding gold in recoverable quantities nearby, the Spanish quickly overran the island and spread to Puerto Rico in 1508, to Jamaica in 1509, and to Cuba in 1511. The natives fared badly. Many died in one-sided armed conflict with soldiers and settlers, or in forced servitude in mines and on plantations. Others died of diseases to which they had no immunity. By mid-century, the native Ciboney of Hispaniola and western Cuba were extinct, and other tribes, including the Arawak of Puerto Rico, were nearly so. Beginning in 1508, Spanish settlements sprang up on the mainland of Central and South America. In 1519, just six years after Balboa had crossed the Isthmus of Panama and claimed the entire Pacific Ocean for Spain, Pedro Arias de Avila, Balboa's father-in-law and executioner, founded the city of Panama on the

Extractions: Dictionary and Thesaurus American textbooks often carry the history of Europe up into the Renaissance, and then plunge into the Age of Discovery and Exploration as a preliminary to the study of United States history. As a result, we are much more aware of the effect of the Discovery of the New World, as the Europeans conceived it, upon the Americas, than the effect that the opening up of new lands had upon Europe. If we were more aware of the changes that the discoveries caused, we might be willing to concede that these discoveries were a basic factor in the end of the Middle Ages. Columbus' voyage of 1492 was intended to discover a shorter all-water route to China and India than the route around Africa that was being opened up by the Portuguese, and the aim of both was to be able to by-pass the Muslim and Byzantine middle-men through which the spices of the East reached Western Europe. Although Columbus died still believing that he had opened up the Indies to Spain which is why Europeans called the native inhabitants of the Americas "Indians" most realized that a great land mass lay between them and the spices of the East, and also began to realize that there were sources of gold and silver there. The natives had amassed a great deal of golden treasure over the centuries, and the first flood of "new" gold into Spain and Europe came as a result of the
