The Explorer: Giovanni da Verrazano, 1525 - North America / Atlantic
The Story: Cape Fear
It’s 1525 when the Italian born adventurer, Giovanni da Verrazano, leaves Dieppe to explore the eastern Atlantic for the French. He is much loved by the French for his capture of a Spanish treasure galleon. Violent storms and calm repeat themselves before the expedition reaches land on, what is now, the Carolina’s in North America. Following the coast south, they are amazed by the beaches, forests, and lack of people. They eventually turn north to benefit from the northerly current and make land and follow various inlets and bays where they trade with friendly natives, some of whom, introduce them to smoking tobacco.
