Da Gama’s Second Trip Da Gama left better prepared the second time, with 14 well armed ships instead of two. Priests and religious processions sent him off with blessings. But he didn’t bring gifts: He demanded surrender of all valuables from a ship filled with 380 Muslim pilgrims. When they delayed he took the valuables—22,000 ducats worth—then burned the ship and everyone on it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
