Somehow, he found so many mysterious things happened. Next, after he got out of the Roanoke Island, he found out that he could not return to England because there was so difficult to get the transportation to go there due to the war between England and Spain.

In addition, he also cannot find his family like his wife, his daughter, his son-in-law, and his granddaughter. It seemed like everything become so weird and mysterious.
This was a terrible mistake because they were to be well unprepared for the long sea journey ahead of them in the unknown waters. To prevent mutiny, Columbus had two journals. One with a fake distance, and one with a real distance to keep the crew

Unlike Odysseus’s crew they had no idea what the end goal was. Everett in O”Brother Where Art Thou told them that there was a treasure stolen that they could split once they got which turned out to be a lie. This being said it shows that Pete and Delmar really didn’t know what they were getting into. While Odysseus’s crew may have known what the original goal of the journey was; neither his crew nor Everett’s crew knew exactly how the trials that they would face in their journey home. Another difference is that in O’Brother Where Art Thou, it gives people a better insight

When the Europeans began settling in the new land many cultural differences began to arise. Consequently, this left the English settlers and the natives with fear and confusion. The natives of the new land had never seen anything like the Europeans; they had white skin, huge ships, dressed differently, and they had many different weapons. Christopher Columbus in his narrative, Report of the First Voyage, described them as “timid beyond cure” (“Report of the First Voyage” 18). He also stated that when he would men ashore to contact the natives “people without number have come to them, and as soon as they saw them coming, they fled; even a father would not stay for his son” (“Report of the First Voyage” 18).
Social change happens when people are dissatisfied by their everyday life and want to change the way they have to live. In the novel, the citizens of the Dominican Republic have to remain under the dictatorship of Trujillo for 31 years and they do not get to vote for a new president. Whenever someone tries to get rid of him, they disappear or get killed. When Sinita is telling Minerva what happened to her family, she says that after betraying the trust of the ex-president of the dominican republic and after having him sent to Puerto Rico, Trujillo ”[announces] that he [is] president ”(Alvarez,18). Actions like these by Trujillo such as declaring himself leader make the citizens of the Dominican Republic to realize that he is not fit to be in
Stannard addresses this as the “‘invisible’ population loss,” because the settlers would have had no idea that these people had even died, since they hadn’t even reached that specific land yet [Stannard 268]. Furthermore, before the Spanish reached the pueblos in the southwest, the pueblo population could have been depleted due to epidemics [Upham 227-228]. The invisible population loss is what is still widely debated today as there is no way for researchers to know for sure exactly how many natives died. Nonetheless, Upham and Stannard both supply compelling evidence suggesting that this did happen, which severely depleted the populations prior to contact with Europeans in the New
In spite of this, the militias continued on their path to toward Concord Bridge where a battle was fought and the British would be forced to withdraw. The British lost 300 men killed, wounded, or missing. With these many casualties for the British, it was safe to say that no petition was going to sort out what went down at Lexington and Concord. The Americans tried anyways and desperately, with an attempt to restore peace, The Olive Branch Petition was adopted by Congress and sent directly to King George III. The king refused to read the petition and patriots realized Parliament was acting with the knowledge and royal support.
This is a flaw in this theory, the lack of evidence cannot suggest disease; if they had died of disease, they would have had to die somewhere off of Roanoke because, as Miller confirms this conclusion when he writes, “The colonists were not killed on Roanoke” since there was not a single body found much less one hundred bodies (Miller 227). It still does not explain exactly where the colonists went, but it could be the reason the colonists were driven out of Roanoke in the first place (Kripke,
