The British pirate Sir Francis Drake set off for the Caribbean in late 1585 after plundering the Portuguese-controlled Cape Verde archipelago in West Africa. Starting with an attack of the city of Santo Domingo, Drake moved on to the Caribbean port of Cartagena de Indias in South America on February 9, 1586, staying there until late March. His third and last target was the Spanish port city of San Agustín, today part of the state of Florida. Italian artist Baptista Boazio created a number of colored illustrations to accompany an account of Drake’s actions in the Caribbean titled A summarie and true discourse of Sir Francis Drake’s West Indian Voyage published in London in 1589. The map above, which is oriented with North at the bottom, shows the city of Cartagena de Indias.
