American Timeline analysis, section 2: 1520.

Hellllllo once again people who read this blog! So today we're continuing the American timeline, except there isn't going to be much to talk about this time around. So without further stalling, lets begin.

In the year 1520 only two major, mentionable things happened. The Spanish conquest of the Maya Civilization began, and the Spanish conquest of Yucatan. The End.

Yeah there really isn't much information to go bye. I could do a whole exam on the Maya civilization, but that has nothing to do with American History.

That's all for today, I'll see you tomorrow.

American Timeline analysis, section 1: 1513, Juan Ponce De Leon.

Hello once again people who read this blog! So I'm gonna be honest. I hate history. A lot. I think all the important things are neat, but my old history assignment has lots of little bits of info that I didn't even need to know and will probably never use. So mom decided to change my class. Instead, I will be posting American timeline analysis's on this blog. Starting way back in 1513 with the man who discovered the state I live in (Florida), Juan Ponce De Leon.

Juan Ponce De Leon discovered Florida in 1513 on March 27th.
The End.

...If only it were that easy.
So. As mentioned above, he discovered Florida at that time frame because I'm too lazy to repeat it. Now I shall tell you some interesting facts about J.P.D.L.

J.P.D.L actually has 2 people named directly after him, his grandson J.P.D.L II and his great-grandson, Juan Ponce De Leon y Loayza. Like J.P.D.L the First, they all became governors or Puerto Rico. Like father, like...grandson.

J.P.D.L first decided to venture towards Florida after hearing stories of a strange island(s) to the North. It's believed he arrived in St. Augustine, but we're not 100% sure.

Another reason he found Florida (however, this is merely a rumor) was because he was searching for the Fountain of Youth. When he heard about these mysterious islands, he must've thought they were so magical sounding that it MUST be there.
Then upon arrival a little boy kicked him off the ship, then an alligator ate him. That kids is where the story of Peter Pan originated from.
Kidding, however that would be awesome.

Well folks, that's all I have on J.P.D.L today. I hope you learned at least something new, I sure did. If you'd like to discover the whole timeline, you can visit
