|Gallery Talk: Spanish Treasure From the Pacific Trade|
This gallery talk is identical to the 4/25 talk. It is a second opportunity for you to hear Mike\\\'s expert talk on the Pacific World exhibit
Museum of Sonoma County
The promise of Columbus to return with riches from Asia to Europe by sailing across the Atlantic Ocean was interrupted by the American continents. However in 1565, the Spanish made that west-bound trade functional: by sailing across the Atlantic, traveling on land across Panama, then sailing across the Pacific. Those voyages, which ran for 250 years, first reached our local shores in 1579, 1595 and 1603. Learn about this exciting period of history, the artifacts and exhibit items, and some of the amazing stories of these seamen.
Mike Von der Porten has been part of the Drake research since age 2. His father, Edward, developed an outline for this exhibit, and family collections are among the items on display. Mike is the Vice President of the Drake Navigators Guild, the group which has been researching the early explorers since 1949. He is also Treasurer of the Sonoma County Historical Society.
This gallery talk is identical to the gallery talk on April 25, 2019. It is a second opportunity for you to hear Mike\\\'s expert talk on the Pacific World:The History That Binds Us to the Sea exhibition if you were not able to attend the first gallery talk.
