Summary An online version of the Library of Congress exhibition. This exhibit examines the first sustained contacts between American people and European explorers, conquerors, and settlers from 1492 to 1600. During this period, Africans also arrived in the hemisphere, usually as slaves. All these encounters irreversibly changed the way in which peoples in the Americas led their lives.
