de Soto Expedition

In 1984, Hudson and fellow researchers Marvin T. Smith and Chester DePratter published a route for de Soto's Georgia travels that had him crossing the Ocmulgee River near Macon.

Hudson and his colleagues mapped de Soto's route using written accounts of three men traveling with the explorer and matching them with geographic features and archaeological evidence of Indian settlements they believed the explorer encountered. Hudson said what made his proposed route stand up to scrutiny was that the Indian sites formed a chain across the state. [605283]
