Christopher Columbus wanted to reach Asia, because of its large amounts of riches and valuable goods. Instead, he reached the West Indies, which included what is now known as Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, and so forth. Columbus refused to believe that he had landed anywhere but Asia, however.
Columbus only took 4 trips and never got further than Cuba, so he didn't find any mainland. Yet, he opened the door for others to go further and seek longer. He brought disease to the natives he met and when the New World met the Old World what had been was gone.

Christopher Columbus was an Italian employed by the king and queen of Spain. In those days a person did not have citizenship in a particular country in the same way they do today.
He believed, the world being round rather than flat, that if he sailed west he would find a short cut to reach the land of India and conduct trade with them there. Of course he found a new continent in between Europe and India.

Columbus had three ships that carried them to America. He himself was on the Santa Maria along with about 15 other crew members. All other about 40 members were divided onto the other two ships, the Pinta and the Nina.
Yes and no. Yes: He left on his first voyage to the "New World" in 1492 from Palos de la Frontera, a town located in southwestern Spain. And no: His intention was to sail to Asia, but instead he landed in the Bahamas archipelago, at a locale he named San Salvador. And, there were people alread…y living there that called their place Guanahani. America was not called America at the time, it was given that name after the Florentine explorer Amerigo Vespucci, which was at a later date. So, technically, there was no America at the time Columbus 'discovered' it. In fact, he never set foot on American soil, not on North or South mainlands, anyway. And so the myth that Columbus discovered America is most likely false. He, instead, discovered the Caribbean Islands and Central America. It was the other explorers from other European countries that helped colonize the Americas in the years that followed. Plus: Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas. About five centuries earlier a Norse expedition led by Leif Ericson established the short-lived colony of Vinland in what is now Newfoundland, which is on the North American continent, proper. Also plus: The Bering land bridge is believed to have enabled human migration to the Americas from Asia about 20,000 years ago. So the people that Columbus encountered in 1492 had already 'discovered' it many thousands of years before he was even born. So, yes: Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain to America. But no: That is not the whole story. ( Full Answer )

that question cannot be answered as as to how , or where , but assuming that this happeened around 1490's it is safe to assume that his mom is actually long dead by now.
He should have, because he prepared for a trip to the EastIndies that he was convinced was a little over 3,000 miles long,while in reality the westward trip would have been over 20,000miles long. He purely by accident stumbled upon the Caribbeanislands and to his death remained absolutely convinced …that he hadfound islands close to the coast of India. . As it was, he did not die - not even almost - during his tripsacross the ocean, but he had to be saved from death by starvationonce, when he got stranded on one of the islands on one of hislater trips and no-one knew where exactly to find him. But in theend they did, and he survived. ( Full Answer )
Historians today mostly agree that Columbus' successes and failuresmore or less even out. First of all, his calculations about thewestward route to the Indies were totally off the mark. Heestimated that the trip would be 2-3,000 miles, while in reality itwas some 30,000 miles. By rights, he and his …shipmates should haveperished from hunger and thirst long before they got anywhere. Columbus had been warned about this, too: when he first approachedKing John of Portugal as a sponsor, the king's cartographers toldhim that he was totally mistaken: the circumference of the Earthwas exactly known, as was the location of India and China on theplanet. But Columbus wouldn't listen. He discovered the Caribean islands totally by accident, and untilhis death remained firmly convinced that they were part of theIndian coastal area. When he was appointed Governor of the island of Hispaniola, he madea total mess of it. He and his brothers were feared for theircruelty, greed and corruption - so much that the Spanish Governmenthad him arrested for 'Tyranny" and transported back to Spain inchains. He was so generally detested by other magistrates in theCaribean that when he stranded on Jamaica during his fourth trip,it took a year before he was picked up from the island by theSpanish. In later journeys, Columbus mostly discovered other Caribeanislands. He did on one trip find the coast of central America andcalculated it to be the location of the Biblical Garden of Eden. ACreationist might say: "Well, who knows?" After four trips Columbus remained in Europe, spending much of hisenergies on ligitation against the Spanish Crown for a cut of theprofits from the American colonies that he claimed had beenpromised to him. He didn't win, however. ( Full Answer )
He did not die as a (convicted) criminal. He was by allcontemporary accounts an extremely unpleasant man, greedy, pushyand very full of himself. He was also incapable of taking advice orof ever admitting he had been wrong about anything. Although he was never formally convicted for it, he once wasbr…ought back in chains by the Spanish Government on accusations ofinstituting "a reign of terror" when he was Governor of the islandof Hispaniola. He was without doubt guilty of mass torture, massmurder and theft of great amounts of gold and silver there. He spent the remainder of his days completely convinced that wat hehad found were islands off the coast of either India or Japan, andspent years of ligitation trying to get more money from the SpanishGovernment for his discoveries, without any success. ( Full Answer )
Purely by accident. He was looking for a westerly route to the FarEast. Because he had grossly miscalculated the distance to India bysailing westward (estimating it at one third of the real distance)he managed to persuade the Spanish Government to sponsor the trip. Columbus by the way never discover…ed mainland America. Hediscovered only a number of Caribbean islands and remained for therest of his life firmly convinced that these were situated close tothe coast of either India or China. ( Full Answer )
