In 1540, Francisco Vasquez de Coronado entered Arizona with the largest expedition ever gathered in North America and took two years to travel from Mexico to Kansas. Indians might have stood for several hours watching 350 Spaniards, 1,000 Indian allies, and thousands of horses, cattle, and sheep pass by their villages. Historians have puzzled over Coronado’s exact route through Arizona, including Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall, accompanied by Jackie Kennedy, who said, “I was absolutely knocked out by the beauty of all we saw.”
