Interesting there is no mention of Coronado.http://www.skyways.org/orgs/fordco/coronado.html

On June 29, 1541, after much hardship, the group crossed the Arkansas River (called the St. Peter & St. Paul River) near present day Fort Dodge, Kansas. Father Juan de Padilla held a mass of thanksgiving on the nearby hills, the first Christian service held in the interior of the continent, predating the landing of the Pilgrims almost 100 years.

Thanks, do you remember memorizing a lot of these explorer’s names in your early U. S. History class, about 6th grade or so?

I do.
