Adventurers in North America

English adventurers like John Davis and martin Frobisher were mainly responsible for the discovery of the coast of north america
In 1519, the Spanish under Cortez conquered the aztec mexico, which was rich in gold and made the Spain rich and powerful
The Englishman Sir Francis Drake was one of the many adventurers, who made their fortune attacking the spanish ships filled with treasures of the Aztec Indian rulers
In general the Europeans adventurers in North America behaved in a cruel manner towards the natives of north and south america they came in contact with, showing little respect for their rights as humans, like some Brahmins treat fellow Indians today in India
As a result of their battles and diseases carried by the European adventurers, the population of native Indians has greatly reduced, and in the US, they are largely confined to reserves
