On my ride I wanted to find gold and the natives to obey me and my crew members. We were looking for the Fountain of Youth. When we reached an island we saw natives that we wanted to obey us but they refused to so we killed some of them . We went to war and shortly thereafter that they agreed to be our slaves. I became their lieutenant governor.
