About The Country

The English
Captain Sir John Hawkins set sail in 1567. A storm pushed the ships into the Gulf of Mexico. They landed at Veracruz and were attacked by the Spanish navy. Some 114 set ashore to begin a 3,000 mile adventure across the wilderness. Part would later become Texas. Only three survived to return to England, and only one was alive in 1582 to report on the size, wealth, and natural beauty.
