Cuban independence leader José Martí was living in New York City at the time of the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge on May 24, 1883. A month later, he published a reflection on the newly constructed bridge in La América, a Spanish-language New York publication:
Thus they have built it, and thus it stands, the monumental structure, less beautiful than grand, like a ponderous arm of the human mind. No longer are deep trenches dug around embattled fortresses; now cities embrace one another with arms fo steel. No longer do sentry posts manned by soldiers guard populations; now there are booths with employees bearing neither spear nor rifle who collect the penny of peace from the laborers that go past. Bridges are the fortresses of the modern world. Better to bring cities together than to cleave human chests. Today, all men are called upon to be soldiers of the bridge.

Fact: any land between Miami, Orlando, Tampa and other major cities is basically just Cows and rednecks.
A French fiasco in Brazil, 1503. From HistoryToday:For six months [Paulmier de Gonneville] and his crew explored the country, winning over the natives by giving them trinkets in return for food and ‘skins, feathers and roots for dyeing’, which would fetch high prices in France. On Easter Day they erected a twenty-five-foot tall wooden cross inscribed with the names of the pope and the king of France. The Espoir then sailed for home on July 3rd, taking with her Essomeric, the son of the local chieftain called Arosea, and another Indian, who was to act as his servant. Arosea let his son go on condition that he would be returned in twenty months’ time. The Espoir was soon hit by scurvy, which killed the Indian servant and six of the crew. Before leaving Brazil, de Gonneville decided to make another landing further north in an area frequented by cannibals. They killed four of his men and wounded another five. Further north still, perhaps at Bahia, de Gonneville and his men were better received. Before they finally left Brazil, they kidnapped two more Indians, but they escaped and swam ashore. There was worse to come for de Gonneville. He had almost reached Honfleur when his ship was attacked by an English privateer. Twelve of his men were killed and four more died of sickness soon afterwards. The Espoir was so damaged that she had to be beached and all her precious cargo was lost. Essomeric, however, survived, though he never returned to Brazil.
“Hey, want some trinkets?”
“Me want dinner.”
