The question and answer belong in the same category as, How did little John Bull manage to get control over such an inordinately big chunk of the earths surface? The world old reasons: armed might, plus audacity and courage, ships and sealing wax. Portugal and Spain were bitter rivals as the two greatest dis coverers of all times. The zenith of their navigation exploits was reached when, in a race to find an ocean short cut to India, Christo pher Columbus discovered the West Indies, in 1492. Brazil was actually discovered by a Spaniard, Vicente Yanez Pinzon, a companion of Columbus, in 1499. Hemade no settle ment, however, but claimed his discovery, nevertheless, in the name of the Spanish government. The following year, 1500, the Portu guese Commander, Pedro Alvares Cabral, following the course of Vasco da Gama, was driven by adverse winds out of his track and was literally blown ashore, and accidentally discovered Brazil It seemed a good omen, on April 24, 1500, which was Good Friday.
