This Site describes the 15 year Conquest of Native America. Hernando de Soto
, Spain's main North America explorer, searched for a seaway to China in order to trade Spain's New World gold. He followed trails that we use as highways. His records describe Native Villages along those trails at places that are cities again today. Cabeza de Vaca's eight years in North America , starting in 1528, set the stage for Coronado and Hernando de Soto to lead armies deep into America: Coronado from Mexico City and DeSoto from Cuba, Spain's "Ellis Island." Vaca was the first European to describe this continent , but only near its southern shoreline. DeSoto, at age 39, was rich from Incan gold and wanted to colonize North America. To do so, he planned to open a passage to trade Spain's New World fortunes with China , the largest supermarket in the world. Intelligent Indians had told Vaca of a northern sea that DeSoto believed was the Pacific Ocean, the sea Balboa discovered beyond Panama, DeSoto's boyhood home.

VIKINGS (By David Lara)
The Vikings were bold seafaring people from Scandanavia. Between 700 and 1000, their population grew steadily and food was scarce. This caused the Vikings to turn their long boats west in search of new lands. In the mid-800s, they settled in Iceland.
From there, the Vikings pushed even farther west. In 982, a red-haired, great bearded explorer named Eric the Red sailed to an island he called Greenland. Actually Greenland had more ice and harsher climate than Iceland, but Eric hoped the pleasant-sounding name of Greenland would attract farmers.
In 1001, Eric's son, Lief Ericsson set sail to investigate reports of yet another new land. Lief's crew sailed west and south. In time, they came to a place where wheat and grapes grew wild. Lief named it Vinland or Wineland.
Viking sagas, or stories of brave deeds, described Vinland as a mild plentiful land. According to sagas, Lief returned to Greenland, but one of his friends, Thorfinn Karlsefni (KAHRL sehf ne), decided to build a settlement in Vinland. He took a group of about 150 settlers with him.

DeSoto's Background
by Donald E. Sheppard
The study of DeSoto's conquest is inseparable from that of Panphilo de Narvaez. Both were Spanish conquistadors who are known to have entered and exited Florida near the same locations, within a dozen years of each other. Narvaez failed utterly. DeSoto followed and partially succeeded here. DeSoto's army became aware of native aversion to Spaniards, provoked by Narvaez and coastal slave hunters, shortly after landing. Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca provides us with the only extant Narrative of the Narvaez Expedition , which was poorly executed and scantily recorded. DeSoto's chroniclers, who wrote their perceptions of Narvaez and described the place where he built his boats for escape, are relied upon here for additional intelligence of his "conquest." Once DeSoto marched to North Florida and established his winter quarters, he dispatched his "Thirty Lancers" to ride back down his trail to advance the troops and ships left behind at port. The Lancer's journal, questionably understood but factually related by Inca, is used here to establish distances between places which the chroniclers failed to record in their personal journals when they blazed that trail. Inca's account of the Thirty Lancers journey will, therefore, be discussed, at times, before we discuss DeSoto's arrival in North Florida. I know of no other way to substantiate this incredible journey as it unfolds.

Southern People Project: Trailing DeSoto, Then and Now
Overview . This online thematic project provides classes an opportunity to conduct research in order to compare and contrast the world Hernando DeSoto saw in the 1500s to our world today. From the geographic data in DeSoto's journals and in Spanish writings of his time, researchers in 1996 were able to locate his trails as the harbors and mountains, rivers, and lakes "then" remain "now." Students in this project will use this information, located at , as the main information source to develop their comparisons. However, students should also use other online as well as print sources for additional and comparative facts.

The Age of Exploration in Georgia Georgia History 101 by Col. Samuel Taylor U.S.M.C. (Ret.)
exclusively for Our Georgia History Although Portuguese sailors may have visited the New World as early as 1454, it is Christopher Columbus, an Italian sailing under a Spanish flag, who is generally credited with the first landing in North America. The initial thrust of the Spanish sailors was into the Caribbean, continuing the search for a route to the West Indies. It became apparent that no quick route would be found and the thrust of the Spanish flag vessels became exploration and conquest. 1513 brought Juan Poncé de León to the Florida coast. Moving north from Florida, Spanish exploration may have touched the present-day Georgia coast before 1520. In 1526 an attempt was made to establish a colony on the coast of Georgia or South Carolina by Lucas Vasquez de Ayllon. Although the exact location is unknown, historians now believe it is more likely to have been in Georgia, perhaps in the vicinity of St. Catherine's Island. The expedition ended in disaster, with Vasquez de Ayllon and many others dead and the rest barely escaping. Hernando deSoto became one of the earliest Europeans to see the state (1540), leaving a path of destruction in his wake. The Moundbuilder culture, already in decline, would cease to exist in Georgia by 1560, when Tristan de Luna revisited the area of deSoto's initial expedition. Juan Pardo reported a similar finding in 1566. Pardo had been sent to the interior of Georgia by Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, who established a colony and Jesuit Mission on San Pedro (St. Catherines) near the Creek town of Guale (pronounced Wah-le) earlier that year.

Hernando De Soto
Explorer and conqueror, born at Villanueva de la Serena, Badajoz, Spain , 1496 or 1500; died on the banks of the Mississippi the latter part of June, 1542. He was given the rank of captain of a troop of horsemen in 1516 by Pedrarias , set out from Panama with an expedition which explored Nicaragua and Honduras , conquering and colonizing the country as they proceeded. In 1532 he joined the expedition of Francisco Pizzaro starting from Panama for the conquest of Peru . Recognizing his importance, Pizzaro made de Soto second in command, though this caused some opposition from Pizzaro's brothers. In 1533 he was sent at the head of a small party to explore the highlands of Peru , and he discovered the great national road which led to the capital. Soon afterwards he was selected by Pizzaro as ambassador to visit the Inca Atahualpa, lord of Peru , and he was the first Spaniard who spoke with that chief. After the imprisonment of Atahualpa, de Soto became very friendly with him and visited him often in his confinement. De Soto played a prominent part in the engagements which completed the conquest of Peru , including the battle which resulted in the capture of Cuzco , the capital. Upon his return from an expedition, he learned that
