Opis: Vamos ? M?xico (Classic Reprint) - Company Southern Pacific

Excerpt from Vamos Mxico
Cortez's conquest of the wondrous land of the Aztecs reads like a romance rather than the prosy pages of history, and it may be that it is this story of romantic adventure, that all through the hundreds of years since he landed on the sandy shores of Vera Cruz, that has inspired that indefinable desire of every traveler to see the land that became more famous than the realm of Castile in the name of whose king the conqueror came.
The fame of Mexico had gone abroad throughout the world, but it was left to Spain to find the man to add an empire to a kingdom. Nothing could turn the intrepid Cortez from his purpose; thrice he started, twice was left behind, detained and thrown into prison in Cuba, but fate held back all ships but his. Cordoba's and Grijalva's fleet sailed along the southern coast and came again to Cuba to tell of a land of gold that they had only seen but not explored.
Cortez would wait no longer; despite the king's command, through Velasco's order, embarked, sailed before fair winds, landed on an unknown shore, burned his ships behind him and commenced a march against a warlike people whose thousands of warriors might any day fall upon his handful of followers and destroy them; all undaunted he led his soldiers under the very walls, but they seemed to fall down before him - that he might enter in and place his name on the first page of a history that is stranger than fiction, and fill the other pages with the dauntless deeds of a conqueror and his fearless followers.
The Aztecs and the Toltecs, in wandering tribes, came from no man knows where - had made a great city in the midst of the plain of Anahuac and defended their capital within the walls of Tenochtitlan 'gainst the despoiling Spaniards, but their arrows fell as straws, harmless on the armored soldiers, who answered with terrible machines that sent forth fire and brimstone with the leaden messengers of death, and mowed down the astonished warriors in countless thousands, and the empire of the Aztecs ended when Montezuma fell. What interesting stories the pictured writings of the Aztecs might tell of their wanderings; whence they came and how their cities were builded will forever go unread, and Prescott's tale of the Conquest must suffice through his entrancing pages, but make us wish for more.
The empire that Cortez added to the Kingdom of Spain extended from Alaska to Peru, from the Golden Gate to St. Augustine, and for two hundred years this greatest realm of the earth remained intact, extending its borders everywhere; but the day came when the tide turned the other way, and scarcely a decade passed but some territory was lost to Spain, as this country and that declared its independence or was ceded to other powers, till to-day no country on the continent owes allegiance to the king whose armies made their conquest.
The Spanish Viceroys ruled in Mexico for nearly three hundred years; the first arrived in 1535, and the Independence of the country was recognized by Spain in 1836, twenty-six years after Hidalgo had sounded the Grito of Independence, and twenty three years after the formal Declaration.
