History: The El Cazador departed Vera Cruz for New Orleans on the 11th of January, 1784, carrying 450,000 pieces of Pesos, never to be heard from again. By the 1800's Spain could no longer control colonial Louisiana, and was forced to cede it back to France. In 1803, the US purchased Louisiana from Napoleon's France, thus doubling the size of the United States.
