De Soto National Memorial

This National Park site commemorates the 1539 - 1542 expedition of Hernando de Soto, the Spanish conquistador who explored the southern part of North America in a journey that covered 4,000 miles from Florida to Texas. From December through April the site has living history demonstrations that bring to life de Soto's landing camp, Camp Uzita, named after the local chief.
