Francisco Vasquez de Coronado

In 1540, with 335 Spaniards, 1300 Natives, and 4 monks Francisco settled out to find the golden cities of Cibola.Coronado's first expedition was when he crossed present-day America by following the Zuni River into Cibola (present-day Mexico).Coronado expected to find the golden cities but found Indian Pueblos instead. The men took the pueblos by force. Coronado sent scouting parties to search for the cities. The party raided a poor Zuni Village and followed the Colorado River into the Grand Canyon. Francisco later heard of the golden cities of Quivira. He searched for it but couldn't find it. After the several years of searching and failing, Coronado came back with no news of his great glory of the cities of gold. So to summarize, Francisco found the Zuni River, Zuni Indian Pueblos, Hopi Indian Village, the Grand Canyon, Colorado River,and Kansas.
