In 1493 Juan Ponce de Len joined Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to the New World. Thus began a lifetime of exploration for Ponce de Len, who traveled to Puerto Rico in 1506, the island of Bimini in 1512, Florida in 1513. He died in Florida, fighting against the area's indigenous people. How can we know what Ponce de Len's explorations were like, or what effect his actions had on the Native peoples he encountered? By studying maps, journal excerpts, and other artifacts from Ponce de Len's time, we can learn about his impact on history.
