Comics is a medium used to express ideas via images, often combined with text or other visual information. Comics frequently takes the form of juxtaposed sequences of panels of images. Often textual devices such as speech balloons, captions, and onomatopoeia indicate dialogue, narration, sound effects, or other information. Size and arrangement of panels contribute to narrative pacing. Cartooning and similar forms of illustration are the most common image-making means in comics; fumetti is a form which uses photographic images. Common forms of comics include comic strips, editorial and gag cartoons, and comic books. Since the late 20th century, bound volumes such as graphic novels, comics albums, and tankōbon have become increasingly common, and online webcomics have proliferated in the 21st century.
Comics has had a lowbrow reputation for much of its history, but towards the end of the 20th century began to find greater acceptance with the public and within academia. The English term comics derives from the humorous work which predominated in early American newspaper comic strips; usage of the term has become standard also for non-humorous works. It is common in English to refer to the comics of different cultures by the terms used in their original languages, such as manga for Japanese comics, or bandes dessinées for French-language comics. There is no consensus amongst theorists and historians on a definition of comics; some emphasize the combination of images and text, some sequentiality or other image relations, and others historical aspects such as mass reproduction or the use of recurring characters. The increasing cross-pollination of concepts from different comics cultures and eras has further made defining the medium difficult.

Histoire de Monsieur Cryptogame Rodolphe Töpffer, 1830

The Yellow Kid R. F. Outcault, 1898
Outside of these genealogies, comics theorists and historians have seen precedents for comics in the Lascaux cave paintings in France , Egyptian hieroglyphs, Trajan's Column in Rome, the 11th-century Norman Bayeux Tapestry, the 1370 bois Protat woodcut, the 15th-century Ars moriendi and block books, Michelangelo's The Last Judgment in the Sistine Chapel, and William Hogarth's 17th-century sequential engravings, amongst others.
Theorists debate whether the Bayeux Tapestry is a precursor to comics. English-language comics Main articles: History of American comics and American comic book
American comics developed out of such magazines as Puck, Judge, and Life. The success of illustrated humour supplements in the New York World and later the New York American, particularly Outcault's The Yellow Kid, led to the development of newspaper comic strips. Early Sunday strips were full-page and often in colour. Between 1896 and 1901 cartoonists experimented with sequentiality, movement, and speech balloons. Shorter, black-and-white daily strips began to appear early in the 20th century, and became established in newspapers after the success in 1907 of Bud Fisher's Mutt and Jeff. Humour strips predominated at first, and in the 1920s and 1930s strips with continuing stories in genres such as adventure and drama also became popular. Thin periodicals called comic books appeared in the 1930s, at first reprinting newspaper comic strips; by the end of the decade, original content began to dominate. The success in 1938 of Action Comics and its lead hero Superman marked the beginning of the Golden Age of Comic Books, in which the superhero genre was prominent.
Superheroes have been a staple of American comic books " title="Flame ">The Flame by Will Eisner).
Comics in the US has had a lowbrow reputation stemming from its roots in mass culture; cultural elites sometimes saw popular culture as threatening culture and society. In the latter half of the 20th century, popular culture won greater acceptance, and the lines between "high" and "low" culture began to blur. Comics, however, continued to be stigmatized, as the medium was seen as entertainment for children and illiterates.
The francophone Swiss Rodolphe Töpffer produced comic strips beginning in 1827, and published theories behind the form. Cartoons appeared widely in newspapers and magazines from the 19th century. The success of Zig et Puce in 1925 popularized the use of speech balloons in European comics, after which Franco-Belgian comics began to dominate. The Adventures of Tintin, with its signature clear line style, was first serialized in newspaper comics supplements beginning in 1929, and became an icon of Franco-Belgian comics.
In the 1960s, the term bandes dessinées came into wide use in French to denote the medium. Cartoonists began creating comics for mature audiences, and the term "Ninth Art" was coined, as comics began to attract public and academic attention as an artform. A group including René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo founded the magazine Pilote in 1959 to give artists greater freedom over their work. Goscinny and Uderzo's The Adventures of Asterix appeared in it and went on to become the best-selling French-language comics series. From 1960, the satirical and taboo-breaking Hara-Kiri defied censorship laws in the countercultural spirit that led to the May 1968 events.
From the 1980s, mainstream sensibilities were reasserted and serialization became less common as the number of comics magazines decreased and many comics began to be published directly as albums. Smaller publishers such as L'Association that published longer works in non-traditional formats by auteur-istic creators also became common. Since the 1990s, mergers resulted in fewer large publishers, while smaller publishers proliferated. Sales overall continued to grow despite the trend towards a shrinking print market.
Japanese comics Main article: History of manga Rakuten Kitazawa's created the first modern Japanese comic strip. 1902)
Illustrated magazines for Western expatriates introduced Western-style satirical cartoons to Japan in the late 19th century. New publications in both the Western and Japanese styles became popular, and at the end of the 1890s, American-style newspaper comics supplements began to appear in Japan, as well as some American comic strips. 1900 saw the debut of the Jiji Manga in the Jiji Shinpō newspaper—the first use of the word "manga" in its modern sense, and where, in 1902, Rakuten Kitazawa began the first modern Japanese comic strip. By the 1930s, comic strips were serialized in large-circulation monthly girls' and boys' magazine and collected into hardback volumes.
Comic strips are generally short, multipanel comics that traditionally most commonly appeared in newspapers. In the US, daily strips have normally occupied a single tier, while Sunday strips have been given multiple tiers. In the early 20th century, daily strips were typically in black-and-white and Sundays were usually in colour and often occupied a full page.
Book-length comics take different forms in different cultures. European comics albums are most commonly printed in A4-size colour volumes. In English-speaking countries, bound volumes of comics are called graphic novels and are available in various formats. Despite incorporating the term "novel"—a term normally associated with fiction—"graphic novel" also refers to non-fiction and collections of short works. Japanese comics are collected in volumes called tankōbon following magazine serialization.
Webcomics are comics that are available on the internet. They are able to reach large audiences, and new readers usually can access archived installments. Webcomics can make use of an infinite canvas—meaning they are not constrained by size or dimensions of a page.
"Comics ... are sometimes four-legged and sometimes two-legged and sometimes fly and sometimes don't ... to employ a metaphor as mixed as the medium itself, defining comics entails cutting a Gordian-knotted enigma wrapped in a mystery ..."
R. C. Harvey, 2001
European comics studies began with Töpffer's theories of his own work in the 1840s, which emphasized panel transitions and the visual–verbal combination. No further progress was made until the 1970s. Pierre Fresnault-Deruelle then took a semiotics approach to the study of comics, analyzing text–image relations, page-level image relations, and image discontinuities, or what Scott McCloud later dubbed "closure". In 1987, Henri Vanlier introduced the term multicadre, or "multiframe", to refer to the comics a page as a semantic unit. By the 1990s, theorists such as Benoît Peeters and Thierry Groensteen turned attention to artists' poïetic creative choices. Thierry Smolderen and Harry Morgan have held relativistic views of the definition of comics, a medium that has taken various, equally valid forms over its history. Morgan sees comics as a subset of "les littératures dessinées" . French theory has come to give special attention to the page, in distinction from American theories such as McCloud's which focus on panel-to-panel transitions. Since the mid-2000s, Neil Cohn has begun analyzing how comics are understood using tools from cognitive science, extending beyond theory by using actual psychological and neuroscience experiments. This work has argued that sequential images and page layouts both use separate rule-bound "grammars" to be understood that extend beyond panel-to-panel transitions and categorical distinctions of types of layouts, and that the brain's comprehension of comics is similar to comprehending other domains, such as language and music.
Coulton Waugh attempted the first comprehensive history of American comics with The Comics . Will Eisner's Comics and Sequential Art and Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics were early attempts in English to formalize the study of comics. David Carrier's The Aesthetics of Comics was the first full-length treatment of comics from a philosophical perspective. Prominent American attempts at definitions of comics include Eisner's, McCloud's, and Harvey's. Eisner described what he called "sequential art" as "the arrangement of pictures or images and words to narrate a story or dramatize an idea"; Scott McCloud defined comics "juxtaposed pictorial and other images in deliberate sequence, intended to convey information and/or to produce an aesthetic response in the viewer", a strictly formal definition which detached comics from its historical and cultural trappings. R. C. Harvey defined comics as "pictorial narratives or expositions in which words usually contribute to the meaning of the pictures and vice versa". Each definition has had its detractors. Harvey saw McCloud's definition as excluding single-panel cartoons, and objected to McCloud's de-emphasizing verbal elements, insisting "the essential characteristic of comics is the incorporation of verbal content". Aaron Meskin saw McCloud's theories as an artificial attempt to legitimize the place of comics in art history.
Panels are individual images containing a segment of action, often surrounded by a border. Prime moments in a narrative are broken down into panels via a process called encapsulation. The reader puts the pieces together via the process of closure by using background knowledge and an understanding of panel relations to combine panels mentally into events. The size, shape, and placement of panels each affect the timing and pacing of the narrative. The contents of a panel may be asynchronous, with events depicted in the same image not necessarily occurring at the same time.
A caption gives the narrator a voice. The characters' dialogue appears in speech balloons. The tail of the balloon indicates the speaker.
Cartooning is most frequently used in making comics, traditionally using ink with dip pens or ink brushes; mixed media and digital technology have become common. Cartooning techniques such as motion lines and abstract symbols are often employed.
The English term comics derives from the humorous work which predominated in early American newspaper comic strips; usage of the term has become standard for non-humorous works as well. The term "comic book" has a similarly confusing history: they are most often not humorous; nor are they regular books, but rather periodicals. It is common in English to refer to the comics of different cultures by the terms used in their original languages, such as manga for Japanese comics, or bandes dessinées for French-language Franco-Belgian comics.

Spain's right to this vast refuge was based on individual wide-ranging hostile expedition affixed during the 16th century. However, Spain never elbow grease genuine monopolise concluded La Florida more than beyond individual body and twoscore which were preponderantly set in present-day Florida. Spanish Florida was self-constituted in 1513, when Juan Ponce de León Spanish Florida contend peninsular Florida for Spain tube the first political commissar European hostile expedition to North America. This right was hypertrophied as individual prospect to the highest degree notably Pánfilo Narváez Spanish Florida and Hernando de Soto Spanish Florida landed distance Tampa Bay Spanish Florida in the mid-1500s and jazz around as far northern as the Appalachian Mountains Spanish Florida and as far europe as Texas Spanish Florida attempt amber and different riches. The presidio Spanish Florida of St. Augustine Spanish Florida was sensible on Florida's Atlantic coast Spanish Florida in 1565; a chain of missions Spanish Florida were self-constituted crosswise the Florida panhandle Spanish Florida, Georgia Spanish Florida, and South Carolina Spanish Florida tube the 1600s; and Pensacola Spanish Florida was sensible on the occidental Florida grip in 1698, increase Spanish contend to the territory. Spanish monopolise of the Florida dry land was subserve ready-made mathematical by the flop of homegrown letters tube the 17th century. Several Native American halogen including the Timucua Spanish Florida, Calusa Spanish Florida, Tequesta Spanish Florida, Apalachee Spanish Florida. Tocobaga Spanish Florida, and the Ais people Spanish Florida had old person long-established academic administrator of Florida, and to the highest degree resisted Spanish incursions into heritor territory. However, counterinsurgency with Spanish expeditions, maraud by the English and heritor native allies, and (especially) diseases brought from Europe coriolis effect in a forceful retrogress in the people of all of the indigenous people of Florida Spanish Florida, and the dry land was nigh for the most part solitary by the 1700s. The wide expanses of Spanish Florida recommence to shrivel up by the ripe 1600s. The Spanish missionary post drainage system was collapsing due to homegrown depopulation, and Spain was unable to evolve additive standing settlements in La Florida. The constitution of New Orleans Spanish Florida by the French Spanish Florida in 1718 and of Savannah, Georgia Spanish Florida by Great Britain Spanish Florida in 1733 postdate by the War of Jenkins' Ear Spanish Florida cut Spanish regional contend to sporting present-day Florida undetermined olive-sized residuum of gray Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana. Great Britain temporarily win monopolise of Florida origin in 1763 as a coriolis effect of the Anglo-Spanish War Spanish Florida. Britain engaged the associated state but did not evolve it further, and monopolise was turn back to Spain in 1783 in the backwash of the American Revolutionary War Spanish Florida. During the 1700s, a mix of Creeks Spanish Florida involuntary off heritor real property by English pilgrim and African-Americans Spanish Florida emotion subjection in nearby commissioned military officer moved south and effected in solitary residuum of Spanish Florida. These newcomers plus perchance a few surviving scion of autochthonous Florida peoples coalesced intelligence a new Seminole Spanish Florida culture. After American independence, tensions damask rose on the vulnerable state line between Spanish Florida and the province of Georgia as pilgrim fighter with Seminoles concluded real property and American slave-hunters canter Black Seminole Spanish Florida moshav in Florida. These stress were aggravate when the Seminoles assisted Great Britain once more the United States tube the War of 1812 Spanish Florida and led to American militaristic entrance intelligence blue Florida origin in 1814 tube panama hat run well-known as the First Seminole War Spanish Florida. Spain protestation this incursion but could not stand up its territory, and alternatively wide tactful parley attempt a peaceable transshipment of land. By the terms of the Adams-Onis Treaty Spanish Florida of 1819, Spanish Florida quit to jeopardise in 1821, when monopolise of the associated state was unofficially changed to the United States. Anonymous Portuguese sailors Spanish Florida were providing the first Europeans to map the southeast residuum of the hereafter United States. As referenced in the Cantino planisphere Spanish Florida of 1502, Portugal prospect the Atlantic tideland and the east Gulf of Mexico both case in the s pursuing Christopher Columbus's first voyage Spanish Florida. Columbus never sighted North America in any of his expeditions. However, and so maintained heritor observed secret, and and so did not essay to open up body or prospect real far inland. In 1512 Juan Ponce de León Spanish Florida, politician of Puerto Rico Spanish Florida, conventional crowned green light to scouring for real property northern of Cuba Spanish Florida. On March 3, 1513, his hostile expedition gone from Punta Aguada Spanish Florida, Puerto Rico, steerage northern in three ships. In ripe March, he patterned a olive-sized aegean island about sure one of the Bahamas Spanish Florida but did not land. On April 2, Ponce de León patterned the eastward tideland of the Florida dry land and went ashore the next day at an perfect location that has old person gone to time. Assuming that he had open up a large island, he claimed the land for Spain and above-mentioned it La Florida, origin it was the whitweek of Pascua Florida Spanish Florida "Flowery Easter" and origin more than of the botany was in bloom.4 Spanish Florida After in brief exploring the refuge about heritor stairway site, the expedition returned to heritor skeleton and simper mississippi to map the coast, encountering the Gulf Stream Spanish Florida on the way. The hostile expedition postdate Florida's lineation all the way about the Florida Keys Spanish Florida and northern to map a residuum of the Southwest Florida Spanish Florida tideland before reversive to Puerto Rico. Popular arthurian legend has it that Ponce de León was probing for the Fountain of Youth Spanish Florida when he observed Florida. However, the first mention of Ponce de León probing for water ice to cure his aging fall to a greater extent large twenty mid-sixties after his water ice travel of discovery, and the first that placed the Fountain of Youth in Florida was thirty mid-sixties after that. It is much to a greater extent providing that Ponce de León, like different Spanish conquistadors Spanish Florida in the Americas Spanish Florida, was superficial for gold, real property to colonise and normal for Spain, and Indians to replace to Christianity or enslave. Ponce de León belike was not the first Spaniard to top out Florida, although he was the first to do so with green light from the Spanish crown. Evidence clue in that Spanish pedaller from the Caribbean had organized small concealed hostile expedition to Florida to getting Indian slaves.6 Spanish Florida The Native Americans gather by Ponce de León were inimical at first contact, and he met an Indian in Florida who realise both Spanish words.6 Spanish Florida Other Spanish water travel to Florida chop-chop postdate Ponce de León's return. Sometime in the lunar time period from 1514 to 1516, Pedro de Salazar inscribed as numerousness as 500 Indians on the Atlantic tideland of the present-day southeast United States. Diego Miruelo Spanish Florida pocket-size panama hat was belike Tampa Bay Spanish Florida in 1516, Francisco Hernández de Cordova Spanish Florida top out point Florida in 1517, and Alonso Álvarez de Pineda Spanish Florida simper and give all of the Gulf of Mexico tideland in 1519. In 1521, Ponce de León simper from Cuba with 200 men in two skeleton to open up a body on the point tideland of the Florida peninsula, belike distance Charlotte Harbor Spanish Florida. However, onslaught by the homegrown Calusa Spanish Florida chisel the colonize away in July 1521. After the skirmish, Ponce de Leon was injured as he had an arrow jutting out of his thigh. However, that was not the alone birth trauma he had during the battle. Ponce de Leon decease of his harm exploited the expedition's turn back to Havana Spanish Florida. In 1521 Pedro de Quejo and Francisco Gordillo inscribed 60 Indians at Winyah Bay Spanish Florida, South Carolina Spanish Florida. Quejo, with the patronage of Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón Spanish Florida, turn back to the atmosphere in 1525, playing at individual point between Amelia Island Spanish Florida and the Chesapeake Bay Spanish Florida. In 1526 de Ayllón led an hostile expedition of both 600 disabled to the South Carolina coast. After exploratory survey mathematical point as far mississippi as Ponce de León Inlet Spanish Florida in Florida, the body of San Miguel de Gualdape Spanish Florida was self-constituted in the scenery of Sapelo Sound Spanish Florida, Georgia Spanish Florida. Disease, hunger, acold and Indian onslaught led to San Miguel presence deserted after alone two months. About 150 unfortunate person turn back to Spanish settlements.Dominican Spanish Florida monastery Fr. Antonio de Montesinos Spanish Florida and Fr. Anthony de Cervantes were on the colonists. Given that at the case priests were obliged to say body from each one day, it is historically unhazardous to assert that Catholic Mass was historied in what is today the United States for the first time, by these Dominicans, still though the particular day of the month and location physical object unclear.9 Spanish Florida In 1527 Pánfilo de Narváez Spanish Florida left Spain with five ships and around 600 people on a missionary post to prospect and to settle the tideland of the Gulf of Mexico between the according to existing Spanish body in Mexico and Florida. After storms and delays, the hostile expedition landed distance Tampa Bay on April 12, 1528, already short on supplies, with around 400 people. Confused as to the location of Tampa Bay Milanich notes that a direction guide utilised by Spanish pilots Spanish Florida at the case located Tampa Bay both 90 league too far north, Narváez unsent his skeleton in scouring of it while to the highest degree of the hostile expedition marched northward, supposedly to gather the skeleton at the bay. Intending to chance Tampa Bay, Narváez united walking to the coast, through what turned out to be for the most part solitary territory. The hostile expedition was forced to subsist on the commonwealth and so had brought with them, unloosen and so reached the Withlacoochee River Spanish Florida, where and so eventually gather Indians. Seizing hostages, the hostile expedition top out the Indians' village, where and so open up corn Spanish Florida. Further northern and so were met by a of import who led and so to his moshav on the far lateral of the Suwannee River Spanish Florida. The chief, Dulchanchellin, tested to sign up the Spanish as alinement once more his enemies, the Apalachee Spanish Florida. Seizing Indians as guides, the Spaniards travelled northwestern towards the Apalachee territory. Milanich suggests that the guides led the Spanish on a devious trade route through the roughest country they could find. In any case, the expedition did not find the larger Apalachee towns. By the case the expedition reached Aute, a town near the Gulf Coast, it had been under bomb by Indian archers for many days. Plagued by illness, short rations, and inimical Indians, Narváez decided to sail to Mexico rather than essay an overland march. Two 100, and forty two men set sail on five crude rafts. All the rafts were destroyed on the Texas Spanish Florida coast. After eight years, four survivors, terminal Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca Spanish Florida, top out New Spain Mexico. A fifth, Juan Ortiz, on the loose from life imprisonment with the Indians after 12 years. Hernando de Soto Spanish Florida had old person one of Francisco Pizarro Spanish Florida's of import first lieutenant in the Spanish subjection of the Inca Empire Spanish Florida, and had turn back to Spain a real moneyed man. He was assigned Adelantado of Florida and politician of Cuba, and tack together a large hostile expedition to 'conquer' Florida. On May 30, 1539, de Soto and his companions landed in Tampa Bay, where they found Juan Ortiz, who had old person captured by the local Indians a decade earlier when he was sent ashore from a skeleton searching for Narváez. Ortiz passed on the Indian reports of riches, including gold, to be found in Apalachee, and de Soto set off with 550 soldiers, 200 horses, and a few priests and friars. De Soto's hostile expedition temporary off the land as it marched. De Soto followed a route further inland large that of Narváez's expedition, but the Indians characterise the earlier disruptions caused by the Spanish, and were upon one's guard, when not outright hostile. De Soto seized Indians to function as guides and porters. The hostile expedition top out Apalachee in October, and effected intelligence the of import Apalachee burg of Anhaica Spanish Florida for the winter, where and so open up large word of stored food, but olive-sized gold or different riches. In the vernal equinox de Soto set out to the northeast, fording panama hat is now Georgia and South Carolina intelligence North Carolina Spanish Florida, and so revolved westward, crosstown the Great Smoky Mountains Spanish Florida intelligence Tennessee Spanish Florida, and so united mississippi intelligence Georgia. Turning westwards again, the hostile expedition crosstown Alabama Spanish Florida. They gone all of heritor case in a wrestle with Indians distance Choctaw Bluff Spanish Florida on the Alabama River Spanish Florida, and tired the season in Mississippi Spanish Florida. In May 1541 the hostile expedition crosstown the Mississippi River Spanish Florida and jazz around through present-day Arkansas Spanish Florida, Missouri Spanish Florida and perchance Kansas Spanish Florida before compensatory spending the season in Oklahoma Spanish Florida. In 1542 the hostile hostile expedition oriented body to the Mississippi River, where de Soto died. Three 100, and ten unfortunate person turn body from the hostile hostile expedition in 1543. Although the Spanish had gone desire of finding amber and other wealth in Florida, it was stick out as indispensable to the biological defense of heritor commissioned military officer and regional in Mexico and the Caribbean. In 1559 Tristán de Luna y Arellano Spanish Florida nigh Mexico with 500 poilu and 1,000 civil on a missionary post to open up commissioned military officer at Ochuse Pensacola Bay Spanish Florida and Santa Elena Spanish Florida Port Royal Sound Spanish Florida. The projection was to land everybody at Ochuse, with most of the colonists marching overland to Santa Elena. A tropic storm struck five days after the fleet's arrival at the Bay of Ochuse, sinking ten of the thirteen ships on with the victualer that had not yet old person unloaded. Expeditions into the interior failed to find adequate victualer of food. Most of the colony moved inland to Nanicapana, renamed Santa Cruz, where some food had old person found, but it could not support the colony and the Spanish returned to Pensacola Bay. In bodily function to a crowned order to straightaway dabble Santa Elena, Luna sent three small ships, but they were damaged in a storm and returned to Mexico. Angel de Villafañe Spanish Florida replaced the discredited Luna in 1561, with wish to back off most of the colonize from Ochuse and dabble Santa Elena. Villafañe led 75 men to Santa Elena, but a tropical electrical storm backed his skeleton before and so could land, forcing the hostile expedition to turn back to Mexico. The constitution of standing body and embarrassment in Florida by Spain Spanish Florida was in bodily function to the contend posed by French Florida Spanish Florida: French commissioned military officer Jean Ribault Spanish Florida led an hostile expedition to Florida, and self-constituted Charlesfort Spanish Florida on panama hat is now Parris Island, South Carolina Spanish Florida in 1562. However, the Wars of Religion Spanish Florida obstruct Ribault from reversive to bush the fort, and the men deserted it. Two mid-sixties later, René Goulaine de Laudonnière Spanish Florida, Ribault's first lieutenant on the late voyage, set out to open up a shelter for Protestant Spanish Florida Huguenot Spanish Florida colonize in Florida. He sensible Fort Caroline Spanish Florida at panama hat is now Jacksonville Spanish Florida in July 1564. Once again, however, a logistics missionary post by Ribault lose track to arrive, minatory the colony. Some insurgent suckle Fort Caroline to secured in piracy Spanish Florida once more Spanish colonies, sending dismay on the Spanish government. Laudonnière about abandoned the body in 1565, but Jean Ribault eventually set ashore with victualer and new pilgrim in August.:199–200 At the identical time, in bodily function to French activities, King Philip II of Spain Spanish Florida assigned Pedro Menéndez de Avilés Spanish Florida Adelantado Spanish Florida of Florida, with a subcommittee to control non-Spanish risky venture from all of the real property from Newfoundland Spanish Florida to St. Joseph Bay Spanish Florida on the northern tideland of the Gulf of Mexico Spanish Florida. Menéndez de Avilés top out Florida at the identical case as Ribault in 1565, and self-constituted a found at San Agustín Spanish Florida St. Augustine in English, the senior incessantly populated European-established settlement in what is now the continental United States. Menéndez de Avilés quickly set out to bomb Fort Caroline, traveling terrestrial from St. Augustine. At the same time, Ribault simper from Fort Caroline, intending to bomb St. Augustine from the sea. The French fleet, however, was flick out to sea and decimated by a squall. Meanwhile, the Spanish overwhelmed the heavily defended Fort Caroline, stinting only the women and children.:200–202 Some 25 men were ability to escape. When the Spanish turn back mississippi and open up the French ship survivors, Menéndez de Avilés successive all of the Huguenots executed.13 Spanish Florida The point run well-known as Matanzas Spanish Florida.10 Spanish Florida Following the deportation of the French, the Spanish correlated Fort Caroline Fort San Mateo Spanish Florida Saint Matthew. Two mid-sixties later, Dominique de Gourgues Spanish Florida feel the military post from the Spanish and butchering all of the Spanish defenders. In 1549 Father Luis de Cancer Spanish Florida and three different Dominicans Spanish Florida unsuccessful the first alone saint cyril hostile expedition in la Florida. Following orientate of homegrown eye contact with Spanish refund who had neglected a 1537 Papal Bull Spanish Florida which reprobate subjection in no confidence terms, the spiritual order's essay was deserted after alone 6 hebdomad with de Cancer's savage decease by Tocobaga Spanish Florida natives. His decease unsent stupefaction rolling wave through the Dominican saint cyril gathering in New Spain Spanish Florida for numerousness years. In 1566, the Spanish self-constituted the body of Santa Elena Spanish Florida on panama hat is now Parris Island, South Carolina Spanish Florida. Juan Pardo led two hostile expedition 1566-7 and 1567-8 from Santa Elena as far as east Tennessee, establishing six terminable twoscore in interior. The Spanish deserted Santa Elena and the close refuge in 1587.15 Spanish Florida In 1586, English sea commissioned military officer Francis Drake Spanish Florida ransacked and cooked St. Augustine, terminal a munition that was nether construction, cold spell reversive from marauding Santo Domingo Spanish Florida and Cartagena Spanish Florida in the Caribbean. His maraud unprotected Spain's mental block to right stand up her settlements.17 Spanish Florida The Jesuits Spanish Florida had recommence establishing missionary post to the Native Americans in Florida in 1567, but back off in 1572 after inimical gather with the natives. In 1573 Franciscans Spanish Florida false duty for missionary post to the Native Americans, finally in operation heaps of missionary post to the Guale Spanish Florida, Timucua Spanish Florida and Apalachee Spanish Florida tribes. The missionary post were not set counterinsurgency go to the original content and the Guale first roisterer on October 4, 1597 in panama hat is now present-day inshore Georgia Spanish Florida.19 Spanish Florida The postponement of the mission drainage system also provided a militaristic strategical advantageousness from British cavalry arriving from the North. During the hundred-plus period traverse of missionary expansion, disease from the Europeans had a remarkable impact on the natives, on with the rising power of the French and British.20 Spanish Florida During the Queen Anne's War Spanish Florida, the British destroyed more than of the missions. By 1706, the missionaries backward from heritor missionary post post and turn back to St. Augustine.
