Same reason as the first expedition, and other similar expeditions: in the expectation of making money.
Christopher Columbus wanted to go to India for riches and supplies. He asked King Ferdidnan and Queen Isabella if he could make his voyage to India because he thought the Earth was round. They agreed and supplied him with his goods. The People of Asia, Africa, Australia, and Europe didn't know about… the Americas so when he discovered them he thiought he was in India because the Native Americans had darker skin like Indian people and that is why he called them Indians.

The legendary explorer Christopher Columbus went to North Americaas part of his attempt to discover a westward passage to the FarEast.

Columbus was born in Genoa (now part of Italy) but lived in Portugal and later Spain. With backing from the rulers Ferdinand and Isabella, he sailed to the Americas (West Indies and northern South America) while seeking a shorter and safer way to reach the Far East (India and China). In 1492, he bec…ame the first European to travel to the New World since Leif Ericson around the year 1000. He opened the way for Spanish conquest and colonization, which was soon followed by other countries in Europe. ( Full Answer )
Christopher Columbus never went to north America, only south America. The guy who went to Florida was looking for the fountain of youth, his name was Juan Ponce de Leon.
India, and when he got here he thought he had made it, and that is why a lot of people use the INCORRECT term of Indians instead of Native Americans. It is because Columbus thought they were Indians.
Columbus landed on an island called Hispaniola. He never got to North America nor knew it was there. He thought he landed in India so called the natives "Indians." He made 3 more trips all in the area of the Bahamas and on his last trip he was shipped wrecked with his son for nearly 3 years before t…hey were rescued. He was a mean greedy man who failed at what he set out to do. ( Full Answer )
The thinking of the time was that there could be a water route to Asia so various people, including Columbus, began to look for a way to get to Asia to bring back trade goods. Columbus was also after riches and fame. He never did get to Asia and only found an island called Hispaniola with no gold an…d a few natives. He thought he landed in India and never knew about North America 90 miles away. ( Full Answer )
spain but just because he sailed for spain does'nt mean he is from spain. (by the way he's italian):)
his second and favorite sons name was Ferdinana also known as Fernando who lived 1488-1539. his second and favorite sons name was Ferdinand also known as Fernando who lived 1488-1539
He never got there due to the fact that he landed in the Americas thinking it was Asia. He wanted to go there because he was going to get silk and spices. Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand told Columbus that he could go.
he was going to India to find the northwest passage between India and China (known then as Cathay)
He wanted to find a really fast and easy trade route to the Indies, or Asia. The Indies had a bunch of spices, which Europeans did not have.
My opinion is that Christopher Columbus really didn't go to Asia. Amerigo Vespucci found out. (Also John Cabot lied)
he went on expeditions to search for a Northwest Passage (all water route through or arround North America)
Columbus never went to Canada. He never set foot on the Mainland of North America, he was only in the Caribbean Islands.
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.
Columbus mistreated his men and the native Americans. he murdered mative men and reped and burned the women and children. he then paraided the dismembered bodies through the towns. oth him and his brother were arrested and shipped back to loose their titles and prestige.
Columbus thought he was pioneering a back way to China or Japan - he thought the world was much smaller than it is. He ended up in what is now called the Bahamas on his first voyage.
If he did it was probably to ask us for directions to America. No secret we found it 500 years before him, we just didn't go boosting about it. Leiv Eriksson was too modest.
On his first voyage in 1492, Columbus was trying to find a passage to India. Instead, he encountered the Caribbean Islands. In his other three voyages, Columbus was still trying to find a route to Asia, somehow going across Central America. He never succeeded.
It took about two hours to go one foot! Slow poke! YOU STINK YOU PEOPLE!
Columbus went on the expedition to find riches like silk, spices,paper,and jewels. But Columbus did not actually get to the Indies. (that's in Asia.) he landed in north America.
yes! He did. Queen Isabella and king ferenand paid money for his voyages if he would bring them wealth from India
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.
One of them was his death called Veneral disease that ocured onbored from numerous starvations...................... -_- ^....^
He ultimately died of effects of venereal diseases that he acquired abroad, or from numerous different starvations.
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.
HE believed he was going to India, and that is why we call Native American's "Indians" though it is very wrong. Hope this helps!
To prove the earth is round and that he can go around to get to India. But he ended up in America. You can remember this by Native Americans were called Indians because Christopher Columbus thought he was in India so he called the Indians. Hope this helped!
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.
Back in CC's time they people of Europe got their spices from Asia (i believe it was mostly India and china)
Columbus never made it to Venezuela. Amerigo Vespucci went there, but later lied about making it to North America.
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 )

well actully nobody really knows when he left to go to asia.he really went to the weat indies to claim land for spain .if he went to asia it was for easier TRADE ROUTES.
west indies he thought he was in asia though, and he died thinking he was
Why do sailors go anywhere with anybody? A variety of reasons, one would suppose. 'Why not?' The adventure. A job. Money. Promises of wealth from the supposed Cathay. Boredom, Are there any actual records of reasons given, I wonder
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.
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.
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 )
