First hand reports from the first feet on the ground

Hernando de Soto

These Spanish conquistadores were some real mean sons of bitches.

This much you gotta hand them, though: They didn't make any bones about it; they just made bones. They weren't there to trade twenty bucks worth of beads for a whole island. They were there to kill the men, capture the women, enslave the whole bunch of them, grab the island, and work them literally all literally to death digging literally gold out of the earth. They weren't pioneers, settlers, or colonists. They were conquistadores. And they weren't too bashful to let you know it.
