The French explorer Hernando de Soto went to the New World hoping to find the fabled seven cities of gold, as well as a passageway to the Pacific Ocean. What he found instead was the Mississippi River. Like many explorers before and after him, he was disappointed that he could not find what he was seeking, but he left his mark on the land that was to become the United States of America in some interesting ways.
