The main point is that the history of Mexico is so much more interesting than the history of Canada. When Hernán Cortés arrived from Spain in 1519, he had exactly 550 men, 16 horses, attack dogs—and cannons. The first thing he did was to burn his own ships on the beach at Veracruz—so there would be no thought of retreat.
