Vasco De Gama then went to the King and Queen of Spain and asked for permission, and he was able to go. This would be the best decision Spain could ever make! Vasco De Gama went around the tip of Africa and had mapped a route to Asia. That is the last example I have of a Historical Pattern or Sequence of events. To summarize it up I think Historical Pattern or Sequence of events is basically saying that history will eventually repeat
After developing a plan to find an easier and new way to Asia, in 1485, Columbus presented his plans to King John II of Portugal. The king submitted Columbus's proposal to his experts, who rejected it. Columbus had persisted in demonstrating his project to the court of Portugal twice. However, with Portugal, Genoa and Venice’s rejection, he resorted to Ferdinand and Isabella, the king and queen of Spain, who accepted to financially aid him in his journey. On August 3, 1492, Columbus set sail from Palos, Spain, with three small ships.
In the year 1519, Spain set sail to be the first ones to circumnavigate the globe. Under the leadership of Ferdinand de Magellan, they were able to accomplish this monumental task by the year 1522, even though Magellan died before they journey was complete. In the article titled “Ferdinand Magellan 's Voyage Round the World, 1519-1522”, we are able to recall the accounts transcribed from the paper-book of a Genoese pilot who wrote detailed accounts about the events that transpired throughout the journey. Around 55 years after Spain’s voyage, the English set out to circumnavigate the globe under the leadership of Sir Francis Drake in the year of 1577. An article titled “Sir Francis Drake 's Famous Voyage Round The World, 1580” was written by Francis Pretty, who was one of Drake 's Gentlemen at arms.
The Corps of Discovery was the expedition of Lewis and Clark exploring the new land that was bought from the Louisiana purchase. Lewis and Clark went on this expedition to make contact with the Native Americans who lived there and to a waterway between the Mississippi and the pacific ocean. Lewis and Clark were two explorers who were chosen by Thomas Jefferson to go on an exploration into the western territory they just bought from Napoleon Bonaparte. While they were exploring they came across the Shoshone tribe and met Sacajawea, who had her baby with her at the time and became their guide. Then they worked their way to the pacific ocean.
Francisco Pizarro was on two explorations as a participant in the discovery of the Pacific Ocean and founding the city of San Sebastian, also known as “Holy Savior”. Pizarro affected the Pacific Ocean so that many other explorers would use this ocean for routes on their ships. The Pacific Ocean was used in his later exploration of Peru, which would not have happened without that ocean. This was the first voyage that made Pizarro interested into going on his very own
Vasco Nunez de Balboa is a Spanish conquistador who spent many years exploring the Isthmus of Panama and the surrounding areas in the early 1500’s. Balboa was sent to explore anywhere in the New World as long as another explorer was of had not already explored there. The only other request of Balboa was that he had to give one fifth of the riches he found to Spain. We believe that Balboa’s personal motives in exploring this area were to take over the land and acquire gold and other riches. He would stop at nothing to acquire these riches.
In 1953, an archeological expedition was led by the Norwegian towards the Galapagos Islands. Other such expeditions were also undertaken within the next few years when he also led one of the earliest scientific explorations of Easter Island. During these two expeditions, Heyerdahl was able to find more intriguing clues that seemed to link these Pacific Islands to early Ecuadorian and Peruvian Indian cultures. The later trip to Easter Island became the subject of another book that he published called “The Secret of Easter Island”. Another sea voyage by Heyerdahl in 1969 was an attempt to show that ancient Egyptians and their reed boats could have sailed to the Americas.
As a teenager, he worked on a farm with his father, until he was offered a job by a ship owner. At this new job, Cook was able to explore the sea and the ships, as this would help him be an explorer. Cook joined the British Navy and later became ship’s master rank. Cook starting traveling soon after being a part of the Royal Navy in the Seven Years War. Cook went on to his first scientific expedition in 1768.
It is a letter from Hernan Cortes, a Spanish conquistador, to King Charles in Europe. This point of view is reliable because Hernan Cortes was an educated man. Document four explains King Alfonso of Kongo’s opinion about his people being taken away by whites for slavery. Document five tells the reader
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.
