The Travels of De Soto

Record #:
With movement on foot to celebrate in 1941 the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the Mississippi River by the Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto, speculation on the possibility that he passed through North Carolina is revived. Not only does the organization sponsoring the celebration, the Colonial Dames of America, plant that the anniversary be observed by the Mississippi Valley states, but also by the states that were crossed on the heroic march, which some say includes North Carolina.
