C Mira Gosslee Mr. Crook History/Columbus Connection 10/14/2015 Christopher Columbus inspired the group (the french group) in many different ways. Number one, if Christopher didn’t discover America, the french explorers would never have been interested in going to these lands, and number two, Cartier was born just one year after Columbus discovered America. So you can imagine that Cartier, and a lot of other explorers, grew up around the stories of Columbus. This probably sparked imagination and a lot of admiration and inspiration to be just like him, just like Christopher wanted to be like Marco Polo when he was a boy. They changed North America by the Columbian trade, and changed the Indians by trade,
Have you ever left a particular place but return only for everything to have disappeared? In 1578, Sir Walter Raleigh sailed overseas to America with his explorius half brother, Sir Humphrey Gilbert. The exploring that took place sparked an interest in Raleigh to one day colonize in America. Shortly after his return, he was granted permission by Queen Elizabeth I to do such a thing. In the summer of 1585, Raleigh sent off a group of motivated English settlers to settle in the New World.
The group had one common goal, to establish a settlement across the Gulf of Mexico, as well as spreading the word of God, prosper in wealth, and also receive fame and glory. They traveled westward and eventually landed near present day Tampa Bay, Florida, in the spring of 1528.

Eventually, the dream of establishing a colony on the Mississippi River Valley would be fulfilled in Fort Maurepas.
The New world was a amazing new place to settle for anyone who was looking to get away from being forced to believe in a certain religion. The first attempt England made to settle a colony was set up to fail. Sir Humphrey Gilbert and Sir Walter Raleigh, Humphrey’s half brother, left England bound for The New World with a group of ships. On their journey there ships were forced back by bad weather. Gilbert tried to go back to the New World five years later.
The village of Tinwald in Dumfriesshire was where Paterson was born. At the age of seventeen he moved to the Bahamas where he apparently got the inspiration for the ill-fated Darien Scheme. Just prior to the Darien disaster Paterson had moved to London, where he set up the Bank of England to act as the government’s bank, gaining a Royal Charter in 1694. Having failed to find any takers elsewhere Paterson returned to Scotland where he was able to convince the government of the efficacy of his scheme, and founded the Bank of Scotland for good measure. The colony that was founded on the Isthmus of Panama was a comprehensive disaster as survival, and not the intended trading route to the Far East, was the major focus.
Change is something the whole world goes through at one point or another in their lives, but what’s vital is what we chose to do with that change.

Juan Ponce de León (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈxwan ˈponθe ðe leˈon]; 1474 – July 1521) was a Spanish explorer and conquistador. He became the first Governor of Puerto Rico by appointment of the Spanish crown. He led the first known European expedition to La Florida, which he named during his first voyage to the area in 1513. Though in popular culture, he was supposedly searching for the Fountain of Youth, there is no contemporary evidence to support the story, which is likely a myth. Ponce de León returned to southwest Florida in 1521 to lead the first large-scale attempt to establish a Spanish colony in what is now the continental United States. However, the native Calusa people fiercely resisted the incursion, and de León was seriously
