Still image from The New World Explored

From 1520-1620, Europeans encountered and explored North America. Spanish explorers Coronado and De Soto, looking for gold, exploited native people as they mapped the southern portion of the United States. Cartier and Champlain, Frenchmen, explored the St. Lawrence River and set up profitable trading posts. Hudson also founded trade centers for the Netherlands. These explorers and others established Europe's control of the New World.
