Hi my name is Francisco Vasquez de Coronado. I was born in Spain in 1510 and I died in Mexico City on September 22,1554 at the age of 44. I sailed for Mexico. I sailed in 1541. I was looking for a wealthy kingdom and looking for food. I landed in Quivira then Wichitia village wich is now Kansas. I discovered the great Plains, Grand Canyon and Arizonia and Kansas area. I came in contact with the Native Americans and Tristan de luna Arellano. I collected from a wealthy kingdom, food, cattle, bison and herds. I also pocessed gold and silver. I made some mastakes because many of my men were hurt and injured on these voyages.

Any other information: Even though Coronado never found gold he was looking for, his efforts were not wasted. Coronado had traveled across the vast deserts and prairies of what is now the United States of America. Fifty-six years after Coronado forst exlpored the southern western United States, the Spanish began to finally settle the land. Coronado is buried in the Church of Santo Domingo in Mexico City.
Today is 1540. I am Francisco Vasquez de Coronado. I am wearing a suit of shing gold aromor. My soldiers carried arquebuses, crossbows, swords and shields. I dream of finding gold and I have scouts in the seven cites of gold and they report back to me. My scouts never found any gold and to make things worse the Native Americans did not like me and did not want my men and I on there land. After all this I led my army through hot deserts and in search of gold.
