Changes Mur History During the four centuries that have passed since the Spanish Captain landed on the Florida coast and undertook his expedition into the intei ior of the continent, the counlrjsictc has undergone profound changes. The > last speakers of the tongues of some of the sav- 'age tribes he encountered 'have •died. No accurate journal was kept of the 1,500-mile trip. The trail had to be pieced together from scanty recqrds and diaries of members rp'f'lhe p^ly. These sometimes differ, The expedition moved through 'an .unmapped-and .unknown territory Names of rivers' nnd oilier .landmarks difTcr from one souice to another. Dr. Swanton concludes his icport with a tribute to De Soto: "We arc'paying tribute to an enterprise which has important hts- touc, ethnologic and , archeologic meanings for Hie )«ople ol the United .Slates ns a whole. We are pa} ing tribute also to an enterprise which, in spite of its coarser ns,peels, did not Jack something of .knightly "character, a theater for the display of real virtues albeit %irlure of'the sterner and harslici t>po.
