Christopher Columbus was trying to find a quicker and faster way to the Indies and went up toward North America and was the one on the Mayflower.

Columbus said to the new world to determine a new trade route to Asia.

Christopher Columbus went on his journey because he heard about the riches in India and wanted to find a quicker route to India (instead of walking which was dangerous because… of robbers). When he tried he found San Salvador (off the coast of Florida) also part of the US.

He wanted to find an all-water route to Asia by sailing west. He was right that one might reach Asia by sailing west but he did not know that the continents of North and South… America lay between Europe and Asia. What he accomplished was of far greater significance in the long run.
Christopher Columbus made a total of four trips to the Caribbean and to South America in the years of 1492-1504.
