Magellan...not the GPS contraption

Ferdinand Magellan's fleet was the first to circumnavigate the globe.  But Magellan himself never made it.  He died in battle in the Philippines.

He didn't complete the trip, but is still credited with the feat.

Of his 5 ships, only 1 returned to Spain.
Of his 280 men, only 31 survived.

Welcome to the 1st Day of School!
