A historical pattern or sequence of events is like saying that history will basically repeat itself in some sort of way. Many of these explorers that we have talked about in class are trying to do three things, explore,conquer and settle. So first you could take Hernan Cortes, he traveled the seas in hopes of finding new land. His objectives were bring pride to his king and country, get gold and other valuables and convert everyone to christianity. Once Hernan had found land in what we call now mexico he went on an exploration of the land to figure out what was there.
The two men are prime examples of surpassing even their own expectations. Christopher Columbus is known to be the one who established America, although his intention was to find a direct water route west from Europe to Asia. He didn 't technically “discover” America, for millions had already inhabited the land. When Columbus returned to the Americas he left his brothers Bartolomeo and Diego to rebuild the Hispaniola settlement, leaving with them crew members and native slaves. Columbus took native slaves of his own when he sailed west to continue his search for gold and treasures.

Puritan Separatists/Plymouth Plantation/Pilgrims/Mayflower Compact: Puritan Separatists were a group of English Puritans who left England to seek religious freedom. They first went to the Netherlands, and in 1620 to America. They were sponsored by Thomas Weston and other merchants who had received a patent for a settlement from the Virginia Company of London. Eighteen families went across the Atlantic in the Mayflower with the agreement that they would send back goods to England to pay for their new land. In November of 1620, the Mayflower landed at Plymouth, outside the bounds of Virginia.
Ponce de Leon was one of the first Spanish explorers in North America. He was the Governor of Puerto Rico and he came to explore Florida. Stories say that he was looking for the Fountain of Youth that Indians had told him about, but really he was capturing Indians to use as slaves.

He went back to Puerto Rico and died there.
In the late 18th century, Jesuit priest Father Gabriel enters the Guarani lands in South America with the purpose of establishing a mission, provoking the natives to convert to Christianity. He is joined by Rodrigo Mendoza, a reformed slave trader seeking redemption, who is later converted into a Jesuit. A treaty transfers the land that the natives are living on from Spain to Portugal, and the Portuguese government wants to capture the slaves for labor. Gabriel and Rodrigo conclude that defending the mission is the right course of action to take, but disagree on how to do so. The Mission is jam-packed of three renaissance and enlightenment thinker’s ideas: Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Martin Luther, and Niccolo Machiavelli.
Phillis Wheatley's "On Being Brought from Africa to America" is dated in 1773, immediately a reader can make an assumption based on the title that the poem is about slavery and someone who has come to the new continent as a slave. The author feels that the Africans should be pleased that they were brought from Africa to America and saved from their Pagan land (Wheatley). The author makes it clear in the first four lines of the poem that being brought from Africa to a new continent as slaves allowed them to find their god and their entry into Christianity as hope for themselves (Explanation of: 'On Being Brought From Africa to America' by Phillis Wheatley). Wheatley even stated in her poem that "taught my benighted soul to understand That there's
Of course Columbus participated in several other expeditions. Many of them were to Africa where he was learning about the Atlantic currents. Columbus then created a plan to sail west to reach the east. Because Columbus’ three-ship voyage of discovery was rejected by the Portuguese king, Columbus took his plan first to Genoa and then to Venice, but was rejected there too. Christopher Columbus was a legacy.

The initial Back to Africa Movement in United States history was led by Paul Cuffee. Cuffee was the child of Kofi Slocum and was born on Cuttyhunk Island, which is off the coast of southern Massachusetts. Cuffee began his career as a sailor, which eventually turned into a successful ship enterprise. Unfortunately, his ship was seized in 1812 during a journey from Sierra Leone to Great Britain; it was an attack or violation of the newly established U.S. 1807 embargo on British goods. Eventually, under the control of his ship the Traveler, Cuffee successfully transported 38 free-willing African Americans back to Africa through their own wishes- this was the first up-and-coming African-led emigration.
Drake earned command of his own ship in the 1560s and named it the Judith. In 1567 Drake traveled to Africa with his cousin, John Hawkins, and a small fleet to join a fledgling slave trade. Together Drake and Hawkins sailed to New
