Christopher Columbus lead more expeditions because the Spanishwanted to start colonies. The country of Spain wanted to findriches.
The second voyage of Columbus to the New World was comprised ofa fleet of 17 ships carrying over a thousand men, plus theirsupplies, with the intent of establishing permanent colonies in theAmericas. . The third voyage was only six ships- three of them were loadedwith supplies for Hispaniola and s…ailed directly there. The otherthree sailed farther south, intending to explore whatever might liesouth of the previously visited islands, and to search for apassage to continental Asia. . The intention of the fourth voyage (coincidentally, four ships)was to search for the Strait of Malacca, into the Indian Ocean. ( Full Answer )
Same reason as the first expedition, and other similar expeditions: in the expectation of making money.
Contrary to popular belief, the expedition DID NOT begin in St. Louis, Missouri. The first entry in the Lewis and Clark Expedition Journals state that their journey began in Pittsburgh, PA. It is true, Lewis and Clark did begin their journey in Pittsburgh. If you still don't believe me, check the… related link below. It leads to a copy of the original journals online. And as we all know, the common American history textbook likes to smudge the details and cannot always be accepted as fact. ( Full Answer )
Columbus said West on his first expedition because he was trying to find a quicker route to India. Back then they didn't know about the Americas so they thought they could reach India faster by traveling West insted of East.

The reason Christopher Columbus made his first expedition was for a special purpose - to find a sea route to the Indies. It says right here in my social studies book called Our Nation on page 120.
Some would say his expedition was successful. It depends your talking to. It's not fair to even give him credit for discovering America because he didn't, Amerigo Vespucci did and named the New World after himself. Christopher Columbus landed on some island in the Carribean Sea (I'm not sure exactly… where.) I would say that his expedition was successful because he wasn't out looking for America, he was trying to prove that the Earth wasn't flat, and he did do that. Amerigo Vespucci didn't name it after himself Ferdinand maggelan named it after Vespucci so your answer was so false think a little . ( Full Answer )
He created a tool that sailors used to determine their direction atsea. This was how they sailed to the event. hebrought people toAmerica and then Spain thought that they should send more people atool . People, animals, plants, diseases, and ways of life were exchanged between the Western Hemispher…e and the Eastern Hemishere. This movement was called the Columbian Exchange. Man of the the things exchanged during the time were good for both sides. But the Europeans also brought diseases killed many native people, and their way of life was changed. Many native people were forced to work sugacane farms. Many were forced to give up their beliefs for Christianity. ( Full Answer )
he went on expeditions to search for a Northwest Passage (all water route through or arround North America)
He mainly explored the Bahamas and found Hispaniola He always thought he landed in India. He did not discover America. Never knew that North America existed.
Since Columbus lobbied hard and for many years to gain support of a transatlantic expedition, it is probable that he considered himself the most important, and perhaps he was right because there would have been no expedition at that time without him. Also, Coulmbus had a list of demands for Spain wh…ich were not met, including the rank of "Admiral of the Ocean Sea," a title which he wanted to be hereditary and passed down to his son and grandsons.

Spain paid for it yeah, Spain paid for it. but specificly queen of England thought there would be riches in the land so that's why.
Not much. He found the Native Americans, a few pieces of gold, and a new area. He didn't find what he wanted and that was a LOT of gold. He never realized he that didn't find India.
A path to Asia. . He was establishing a western trade route across the ocean with the Indies. It was accepted by then that the earth was round, but what they were wrong about was the size of the earth. Columbus didn't expect to find a whole other land mass on the other side of the world, and when h…e first got there, he thought he had landed in the Indies, thus the inhabitants were deemed "Indians". Later on, the lands he found would become known as the West Indies. ( Full Answer )

Contrary to popular belief, the expedition DID NOT begin in St. Louis, Missouri. The first entry in the Lewis and Clark Expedition Journals state that the journey began in Pittsburgh, PA on August 30, 1803 . Lewis, who had been assigned by Jefferson sailed down the Ohio River with supplies toward…s St. Louis. William Clark would offer to join Lewis on the expedition weeks later on October 13, 1803 at Camp Dubois (in present-day Indiana). They then named their team the "Corps of Discovery." From there, they sailed down the Ohio River towards St. Louis. Meriwether Lewis had spent the time prior to their departure in St. Louis gathering information from mountain men returning from the west. They then departed St. Louis in May 1804 heading up the Missouri River. ( Full Answer )
The 1892 Columbus Expedition Coin is worth from around $200-$650. I have an 1893 version which is worth the same.
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.
King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain sponsored Christopher Columbus. I believed they also supported fo the ships, supplies, ect.
He began his voyages at Lisbon, Portugal (Bartolomeu Dias, Vasco da Gama, and Pedro Alvares Cabral)
In 1485, Columbus presented his plans to John II, King of Portugal. He proposed the king equip three sturdy ships and grant Columbus one year's time to sail out into the Atlantic, search for a western route to the Orient, and return. Columbus also requested he be made "Great Admiral of the Ocean", a…ppointed governor of any and all lands he discovered, and given one-tenth of all revenue from those lands. The king submitted the proposal to his experts, who rejected it. It was their considered opinion that Columbus's estimation of a travel distance of 2,400 miles (3,860 km) was, in fact, far too short. ( Full Answer )
he made 9 trips, he went to Africa, Asia, India, hispaniola, america, columbia, london, france, paris.
During the time, many people wanted to find a route to Asia. For riches, gold, etc. Many other reasons were to 1: spread religion, 2: glory, 3: gold and riches. Columbus's Reasons were: . The glory of finding a route to Asia. . Gold and riches.
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.
Christopher was trying to prove that the world was not flat. So hegot help from the queen of Spain and went to find a shorter routeto Asia.
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 )
King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain payed for his first expedition. They gave him a yearly allowance of 12,000 maravedis. Those were the gold coins used back then. All that gold would be worth about 1,620,000 US dollars today. They were paying big time.
So he could contribute to his country, Spain... Plus he was still after what he was looking for which was the Indies (on his first expedition he found the Bahamas)
west indies he thought he was in asia though, and he died thinking he was

Columbus lead an expedition from the Kingdom of Castile, which was one of several kingdoms then in what we now call Spain. He lead it because he convinced the Queen, Isabella of Castile, that it would be a reasonable risk for her to fund the expedition to reach the far east, where valuable spices co…uld be found and brought to Spain. The fact that he was Italian made little difference to such a calculation. He was hired to perform a function for Castile. ( Full Answer )
He landed on one of the islands in the Bahamas and there was no country there for him to claim.
No. Hispanics are generally of a mixed decent from Spanishcolonists and Native Americans. Columbus was Italian, not Spanish.He was born in Europe and was of European descent. Although heexplored parts of the Caribbean, he never actually lived there.
No, although he did sail from Spain, on a Spanish mission. Columbus was Italian - well, Genovese, actually. Born in Genoa, in what is now Italy.
The Spanish sponsorship of the Christopher Columbus expedition was to find a shorter ocean route to East Asia.
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 )
