The Misfortunes of Alonso Ramírez describes the adventures of Ramírez, a poor Spanish American carpenter from Puerto Rico, who was taken captive by British pirates and was supposedly forced to work with them for two years. The book portrays Ramírez as a victim in the hands of pirates while emphasizing the graphic depictions of English pirate cruelty in order to serve Ramírez and the Mexican Viceroy’s purposes. However, through careful examination of the story, I believe that he indeed was a pirate, and will explain so in this essay by arguing four points: first, that Ramírez headed towards familiar territory due to the lack of paperwork for his belongings, second, his lack of explanation of why he did not escape whenever possible, third, his ownership of special weapons, and lastly, the use of words in his storytelling. To begin, Ramírez sailed to Spanish territory because he had no papers that certified that the ship and its cargo were his, as seen through Zepherino de Castro’s many attempts to restrain and seize Ramírez’s property (149). This meant, that he needed to find Spanish soil and subjects, where he knew the laws will be more lenient (rather than somewhere like Madagascar, where he could be denounced as a pirate to Spanish authorities in exchange

Incredible beaches, marine life, and weather are just a few of the things that make the Florida Keys an amazing place. The Florida Keys are a string of islands located off the tip of Florida, which protrude out into the Gulf of Mexico and into the Atlantic Ocean. The oceanography of the Keys are unique because of several factors, including the geologic history, the tides and waves, and the effects of natural and man made threats to the Keys themselves and the thriving marine life.

“If I were to possess a fortune of one million Ducados or more, I would spend the entire amount on this Florida Enterprise” (Menendez). Hispanic Americans have played key roles in shaping, influencing, and laying a foundation for the present day state of Florida despite racial discrimination, and suffering from derogatory stereotypes. Spanish conquistador Pedro Menéndez de Avilés (1519-1574) developed modern day florida in a myriad of ways, for Florida wouldn’t have once been a Spanish territory if not for the influence of Pedro Menendez. Menendez developed Florida by building what is now the oldest Florida settlement, and by governing Florida while also claiming it for Spain.
