Asked in Explorers and Expeditions
What nation became the early leader of European exploration?
What did Christopher Columbus achieve?
He opened the New World to colonization by Europe. Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas in 1492 while trying to find a faster route to India. Hence, for years, the Americas were called the Indies, and Native Americans are sometimes referred to as Indians. The greatest achievement of Christopher Columbus came by accident. In 1492, he was commissioned by the Spanish Crown to find a better way to East Asia. Instead his fleet of three ships encountered the Western Hemisphere. The New World would soon be colonized by major powers of Western Europe.

Asked in Christopher Columbus
Why did chistopher columbus explore?
Christopher Columbus engaged in his dangerous, daring, and ultimately successful explorations of the New World for several reasons. The promise of making a fortune was one of those reasons, as his primary motivation was to discover a more direct trade route to the East. That he was also motivated by the desire to achieve fame for himself and for his patrons seems clear, while religious motivations may also have played a part in his journeys across the Atlantic Ocean.
What did Amerigo Vespucci achieve?
Did Christopher Columbus achieve his goal?
The answer is no. The East Indies lie off the coast of southeast Asia. Prior to Columbus' first voyage the ship route to the East Indies was from Europe south down the west coast of Africa, around the Cape of Good Hope, up the east coast of Africa and on to the East Indies. His theory was that sailing directly west was going to be a shorter route than the huge south and north loop around Africa. He tripped over the Americas by accident. nope C C had one goal, to find a back way to China. In that he failed, because the world is much bigger than he thought it was, and because the Americas got in his way. no he did not
Asked in Christopher Columbus
What did Columbus hope to achieve through his voyages and what did he actually achieve?
How did racism begin in america?
There was never a time without racism in America. Before the arrival of Christopher Columbus, the Indian tribes fought amongst themselves. When Europeans arrived, both sides saw themselves as different, which should not be surprising since the Europeans were so vastly advanced in writing, sciences and technology. With a perception of difference comes the assumption that each group is born differently and one cannot achieve what the other has. This assumption can be rejected at face value by remembering that the Britons were blue-painted savages when the Romans arrived, but that changed.
