The Adventure

An explorer that is hard to come by...

The Aztec

The Cortes expedition almost came to an end when the Aztec turned against Cortes and his crew. Cortes and his men were vastly outnumbered in the Aztec capital of Tenochilitan. The major cause of the change in Aztec toward Cortes and his initiatives was the massacre of the Aztec at their temple, while Cortes was away.
