1492: Americans Discover Europe

Season 10 Episode 1010 | 26m 46s

Americans did not submissively accept the rule of Europeans and their resistance and reception of the foreigners varied greatly. We visit the Dominican Republic, where Columbus established a beachhead, and then to the Mexican port of Veracruz where Hernán Cortés landed 28 years later. We follow his route across lofty mountain chains to Tenochtitlán of the Aztecs, today's Mexico City.
