Short Note This is a short note

Alfonso Fernandez de Lugo landed at Santa Cruz to reduce Tenerife. He had made a previous attempt to take the island earlier in the year, which culminated in the disastrous First Battle of Acentejo, at which de Lugo only narrowly escaped with his life. This time he had the support of a thousand veteran foot-soldiers and a more cautious strategy.
