USA Oldest CITIES were Spanish founded

First Spanish rule (1513–1763)
Main article: Spanish Florida

A depiction of what might be Florida from the 1502 Cantino map.

Juan Ponce de León.

.
Juan Ponce de León was the first European to sight what today is Florida. A legend says he discovered it while searching for the Fountain of Youth. On March 3, 1513, Juan Ponce de León organized and equipped three ships which commenced an expedition departing from "Punta Aguada" Puerto Rico. Although it is often stated that he sighted the peninsula for the first time on March 27, 1513, and thought it was an island, he probably saw one of the Bahama islands.[12]

It was Spanish custom to name a new place after the nearest Roman Catholic feast day.[citation needed] They had just started exploring "new places" for a few decades at most. He arrived on the east coast during the Spanish Easter feast, Pascua Florida, April 7. He named the land La Pascua de la Florida, or "Passion of the Flowers," or "Passion of the Christ".

Ponce de León returned with equipment and settlers to start a colony in 1521, but they were driven off by repeated attacks from the native population. Pánfilo de Narváez's expedition explored Florida's west coast in 1528 but was lost at sea upon his attempted seaward escape to Mexico. Hernando de Soto entered Florida in 1539. In 1559 Tristán de Luna y Arellano established the first settlement in Pensacola but, after a violent hurricane destroyed the area, it was abandoned in 1561.[13]

René Goulaine de Laudonnière founded Fort Caroline in what is now Jacksonville in 1564 as a haven for the Huguenot Protestant refugees from religious persecution.[14] Further down the coast, in 1565 Pedro Menéndez de Avilés founded San Agustín (St. Augustine)[15] which is the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in any U.S. state. It is second oldest only to San Juan, Puerto Rico in the United States' current territory. From this base of operations, the Spanish began building Catholic missions.

The Black Man of African Color created the first cities in America because the Spanish was Moors who everybody knows was the Black of African Color. We had powerful forts and the Indian womens loved are staying power! I even think Columbus was Black of African Color.

Conquistadors were quite a formidable opponent for the indigenous people.

So you're really saying that the spaniards ( black people) stole, pillaged, raped, committed mass murders, converted people against their will, etc all against the indigenous people.

I truly hope you're engaging in marijuana for recreational purposes only because you're duped if you're an academic scholar.

It is said that the Vikings were also very dark of color until they would bathe at the onset of Spring every year.

Not all Conquistadors were Spaniards you many others even Germans who joined in for the fun.

"Castilian law prohibited foreigners and non-Catholics from settling in the New World. However, not all Conquistadors were Castilian or Christian. Many foreigners hispanicised their names and/or converted to Catholicism to serve the Castilian Crown. For example, Ioánnis Fokás (known as Juan de Fuca) was a Castilian of Greek origin who discovered the strait that bears his name between Vancouver Island and Washington State in 1592. German-born Nikolaus Federmann, hispanicised as Nicolás de Federmán, was a conquistador in Venezuela and Colombia. The Venetian Sebastiano Caboto was Sebastián Caboto, Georg von Speyer hispanized as Jorge de la Espira, Eusebius Franz Kühn hispanicised as Eusebio Francisco Kino, Wenceslaus Linck was Wenceslao Linck, Ferdinand Konš&#269;ak, was Fernando Consag, Amerigo Vespucci was Américo Vespucio, and the Portuguese Aleixo Garcia was known as Alejo García in the Castilian army.

The origin of many people in mixed expeditions was not always distinguished. Various occupations, such as sailors, fishermen and pirates employed different languages (even from unrelated language groups), so that crew and settlers of Iberian empires recorded as Galicians from Spain were actually using Portuguese, Arabic, Basque, Berber, Breton, Catalan, Dutch, French, Greek, Italian and Languedoc languages, which were wrongly identified."

Columbus was white but his navigator was a black moor.

Cabot worked for England and took English nationality. Most Germans were bankers on contracts or supervisory jobs, because of loans to Spain.
