England and Spain individually got to the New World. The path they chose to get there was very unalike, though. One concentrated on discovering treasures that would reveal wealth beyond their visions, and the other visualized of forming an everlasting, little civilization that would yield the essential supplies that had become hard to find. Within a small amount of time, Spain discovered the gold and silver it had been in search of but slightly more than that.

The Spanish ran into a lot of trouble because of where they placed themselves on their…

The armada had 130 ships, which had 10,000 sailors and 2,500 guns. On the other side, the English had filled 80 ships with fireballs towards Spain but because they were smaller they could move quicker. They only sent the ships to make the Spanish panic.
When the armada set sail, Philip decided to sail around Ireland. Along the way Philip lost over…
