The failure of Juan Ponce de León's colonial expedition in 1521 paved the way for subsequent expeditions by the Spaniards to the southeastern United States. This chapter provides an account of the Spanish expeditions that were part of the second attempt by the Spanish at colonialism. It describes the expedition led by Pánfilo de Narváez as the most ill-fated of all Spain's earliest colonial attempts in the region. The captivity of a young man named Juan Ortiz set the stage for the next expedition to Florida in 1539 under Hernando de Soto, a wealthy and successful veteran of conquests in Central and South America. This chapter describes the tragic fate of the Soto expedition, including the death of Hernando de Soto himself.
