Impact

  • I think that Cortes really impacted the world back then because most of the people back then were attacked by the Aztecs and for Cortes to go out there and defeat millions of Aztecans it would’ve been amazing to come back and achieve something as great as that,millions of people would’ve been so proud of Cortes to defeat them and come back alive.
