Never in all history has another nation reaped such golden harvests as Spain did from the New World during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Heavily-armed Spanish galleons brought thousands of adventurers to the new lands, and Mexico, South America and a sizable portion of what is now the United States were conquered. Spain's New World domains also included the West Indies and the Philippines.
Native treasures were plundered and the mines from which these came were worked by enslaved Indians, with great cargoes of gold, silver and jewels transported back to the insatiable coffers of Spain.
