Surprises of History:
Spanish wars and colonies in the United States
100 years before the English arrived, the Spanish already maintained their difference against the indigenous people of the United States. Some well-known tribes such as the Apaches, Navajos, Pueblo and later with the Comanches.
Spain built more than 100 forts and missions
In the territories of the present United States
The Crown of Spain built more than 100 forts and missions in present-day United States (U. S). Both in the Pacific Ocean from California to Canada, and even reaching Alaska. As in the Atlantic Ocean from Florida to Delaware the Spanish Crown explored and built forts and missions.
Network of Spanish Forts and Missions through the current territories of the United States
Those existing in the 13 colonies were destroyed by the English colonists either directly or by arming the Indian tribes to attack everything Spanish.
For almost 300 years there were forts, missions and colonies in the territories of the present United States of North America. Among them in some of the territories that the English would later settle, such as Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, East Florida and West Florida.
This part of the colonization is unknown since only the history of the 13 colonies has been told since the arrival of the English. For the Crown of Spain, all the current territories in the area were known by the generic name of Florida.
For several hundred years, the Spanish dealt with the Apaches. There were clashes with the Comanches as they moved in from the North and threatened the Apaches.
There are still more than 100 place names placed by Spanish explorers in the lands of Alaska.
Even the current state of Georgia had important Spanish missions in its territory from the year 1526. While the Spanish evangelized in their missions, the English of the nearby colonies of Carolina and Virginia, opted for the reservations and the annihilation of the natives.
