Cabrillo enters history in Cuba where he was assigned harvest pine pitch for ship building. After he helped sack Tenochtitlan, he was given the land and resources of Honduras and the Hondurans by the Viceroy of New Spain. He built a small fleet of ships and took the many of the women and girls he was given by the Viceroy and used them as sex slaves on his ships. He enslaved and worked many Honduran men and boys to death in the silver mines he controlled. This is all well documented. Is this the kind of person we want to honor? I hope not.
