In 1598, Onates created a Spanish foothold in New Mexico. There were three establishments: Pueblo (farming town by Indians and Mestizo), Presidio (military post), and Mission (church). They started to “cultivate human soul” because they believed the Indian were salvaged. The indoctrinated Christian baptism and assimilated
In the 1760s the Spanish colonized the territory and built missions and pueblos there. When Mexico broke ties from Spain the area, which was then a part of Mexico, was granted to Jose Andres Sepulveda in 1837, who then fell into debt and had to sell the land to James Irvine and his family. In the 1890s Irvine’s son would lease the land out to farmers for agriculture. By 1917, Crystal Cove’s natural beauty attracted hollywood film makers to it. From here on through the 1930’s Crystal Cove is known as a popular spot for camping and
While all of this is happening with the church Mexico ends up gaining its independence from Spain in 1822 which made the push for secularization of the missions even stronger. In 1834 the government of Mexico granted secularization of the churches but unfortunately this did not end well for the Indians. Soon after the land was turned over to the Native Americans, many ended up losing their land to speculators, fraud, and thieves; eventually priests take over most of the missions again. In 1850 California joins the union as a free state which leads to priests taking over Mission Santa Clara again in
But, something made him raise his voice against the terrors the Spanish colonizers did to the Native Americans. Exactly in the year of 1515 he changed his mind about the colonization subject and persecutions of the Native Americans. He changed

The Massachusetts Bay colony was formed on the idea of having religious freedom and when the colony was already settled the founding governor, John Winthrop, envisioned the colony as a “city upon a hill” that would practice Christian unity and order.

1. Introduction 1.1 History Located southwest of downtown Los Angeles, Inglewood lies within Los Angeles County, California. Its vibrant history began in 1834 when Ignacio Machado, son of one of the soldiers protecting the first settlers of Los Angeles, built Cantilena Adobe, which is situated on Rancho Agape de la Cantilena (City History). After multiple additions and owners through the years, Rancho Agape de la Cantinela was later bought by Daniel Freeman in 1885 for a total of $140,000 (Hindman 258). Under his tutelage, the settlement of Inglewood emerged; eventually, the area grew exponentially more once the railroad station had been built.
Fort Maurepas: The Conquest of Louisiana In the 1680s, Sieur de La Salle became the first European to discover the mouth of the Mississippi River. However, he failed to establish a permanent settlement there, so he left a letter to a group of Native Americans from the Mongoulacha tribe and told them to keep it until the French returned. Eventually, the dream of establishing a colony on the Mississippi River Valley would be fulfilled in Fort Maurepas. Fort Maurepas was the first European settlement in what would become the Southeastern United States, and was crucial to determining the fate of the region for centuries to come. After La Salle’s expedition down the Mississippi River, the French saw a vital need to find a colony near the mouth
He had 17 ships and about 1200 men. His goal was to explore and settle on the new lands that he found. His main purpose was to colonize the Taino tribe and for them to teach their doctrine of Christianize to anybody they found. This voyage brought European livestock such as horses, pigs, sheep, and cattle. They also brought settlers to America for the first time.
Sir Walter Raleigh dispatched an expedition to explore the eastern coast of North America. The colonists on the expedition arrived on Roanoke Island on July 4, and soon forged an alliance with local Native Americans. During this first voyage, the colonists lacked proper supplies for a permanent settlement. So, the colonists ended up returning to England. Soon after, Raleigh reported the discovery of Roanoke island to Queen Elizabeth and named
In the late 1700s, the Spanish government wanted to teach the Indians that were living in California about Christianity and in order for the friars to teach the Indians, the government decided to build missions. Friar Junipero Serra was chosen by the Spanish government to build 21 missions in California which was considered the New Spain, but before the 9th mission was build he died. Friar Fermin Lasuen continue with the mission of building the rest of the missions. San Juan Bautista mission was not in their plants to build, but there was a big gap between the San Carlos Borromeo Del Rio Carmelo Mission and Santa Clara de Asis Mission. The Spanish did not felt safe to travel from mission to mission if there was a big gap, they were afraid of the Indians that controlled that territory and had not been taught about Christianity, so Friar Lasuen and the Franciscans decided to make the mission of San Juan Bautista to cover the gap between missions.
In the beginning, it was almost exclusively utilized by Spaniards moving northeastward serving as a lifeline for the missions, as a trade route, and a cattle trail. However by the 1820 's, numerous Anglo immigrants began to utilize the trail from Nacogdoches to new settlements further west. Moses Austin traversed the trail en route to San Antonio to request an empresario grant from the Spanish government in 1820, and many Anglo-American colonists entered Texas at Gaines Ferry on the Sabine River, arriving at Nacogdoches and the interior of Texas. Parts of these roads were not only used for travel, they also formed some of the earliest political boundaries, such as separating land grants, and later, becoming county lines.
Menchaca discussed how the Spanish imposed their way of life on the natives in both Texas and Arizona in order to control a vast territory. Few tribes such as the Apache fought and revisited Spanish influence in their lands. Unfortunately, over the years, they would fall victim to American colonization of the

Cortés later joined an expedition to Cuba in 1518. After he set off to explore Mexico aslo in 1518. King Charles Is appointed him governor of New Spain in 1522 after Hernando Cortes is overthrown.
When the English started to colonize the New World, they first tried to settle at a place called Roanoke. “At the end of the first year, all of the surviving colonists get on a supply ship to go back to England.” This might have stemmed from the fact that the colonists turned on the natives that were supplying them with food to survive. John White returned to Roanoke in 1587, this time as governor of the colony. His journal from that expedition documents the increasing hostilities between the Algonquian Indians and the English settlers. In this excerpt, White relates one of the English colonists’ more devastating mistakes: inadvertently attacking and killing some of their own Indian
