From the Paper:

"After Christopher Columbus came to the new world, Spain and France made several explorations. Spain sent explorers hoping to find gold and eventually colonized what is known today as Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. French fur traders traveled down the Mississippi River hunting different animals and eventually they claimed this area for themselves beginning colonies in Louisiana. It is important to recognize the part that Spain and France had in exploring these areas because these countries continue to affect these states today."
