The European Struggle to Settle North America
April 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, England, France, and Spain struggled to establish permanent settlements in North America. Most of their attempts failed, but each country finally achieved success. The area that would become South Carolina played an important role in this struggle. The authors of The European Struggle to Settle North America: Colonizing Attempts by England, France and Spain, 1521-1608 will delve into settlement efforts in the Southeastern United States and in particular the Port Royal Sound region.
