Biographical/Historical Note

Hernando De Soto was a Spanish explorer and conquistador. He is best known for leading the first European expedition into the territory of the modern-day United States. This included Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and possibly Arkansas. He died on the banks of the Mississippi River in 1542. Sources disagree on the exact location being Lake Village, Arkansas, or Ferriday, Louisiana.
