  1. Hi Jessica,
    My name is Amelia Platt and I am in a class called EDM 310 at the University Of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama. I am form The United States. I love The fact that you took time to write about Sir. Francis Drake. He is someone we talk about but tend to forget in history. Without him we would not know about the world. Also loved looking at your blog it is really cool. Keep up the good work!
