Answer

Arrived in 1492  

Answer

Arrived in 1492
Columbus's goal was to reach India, but he made a mistake and landed in the Bahamas. He arrived there in 1492. A silly way to remember it is "IN 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue" Columbus still thought he was in India and called the people that lived there Indians.
