History teaches us that the explorers such as Columbus, Cortes, Cabot, des Champlain and others were motivated to explore the New World in search of gold, God and glory. However, they were not always motivated by all three factors. In fact, one factor may be a stronger motivation than others.
From what you have read and studied of these explorers in the text book, in readings, in class or in your own research, what do you think their primary motivation was? For extra credit, please identify one explorer and identify what his primary motivation was. Please identify which explorer you chose and the country for which he explored. Also, identify at least one piece of evidence that leads you to believe what his primary motivation was and the source for this evidence.
