Ajacán Mission: Spanish Jesuits arrive at the Virginia colony in North America to convert American Indians to Christianity.

The Jesuits found St. Mary's Mission, predating the creation of the English Jamestown settlement by more than three decades.

Within 6 months, the entire group will be killed by the same Indians.
