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.
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 )

Christopher Columbus was an Italian who was "sponsored" by the queen/king of Spain to set out on a voyage to find the Northwest Passage, a route that was believed to take you to the coast of Asia without dialing around Africa. He set out on this voyage with three ships, known today as the NiÃ±a, P…inta, and the Santa Maria. These ships departed on August, 3 1492 and made landfall at San Salvador on October 12. From there his voyage continued to explore the coast of Cuba, Hispanola, and current day Haiti and the Dominican Republic, where the Santa Maria ran aground on Christmas day, and was forced to be abandoned. Columbus then left some men in a settlement they built, La Navidad, and sailed for Spain. There was a strong storm along the way and the caravan ended up landing in Portugal, Castillian Spain bitter enemy, but they were spared, and after spending a week in Portugal they returned "home" to Spain.

Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer and navigator. Thepurpose of his first voyage was find a shorter route to Asia,particularly India. Instead of finding Asia, he found the NewWorld.
he was going to India to find the northwest passage between India and China (known then as Cathay)
The instruments that Columbus used for his journey were a compass, used for finding the direction a ship is travelling; an astrolabe, used the North Star or Sun to calculate latitude, the distance north or south of the equator; a cross-staff, used to measure the altitude of the Pole star above the h…orizon to determine latitude; and the back-staff, used to measure the altitude of the Sun to determine latitude.

Queen Isabella and King Fredinand of Spain gave Christopher Columbus money and 3 ships for his expedition in 1492.
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)
Curiosity, money/gold/gems, fame and glory, form allies/friendship, trade, gain territory, greater glory of God, wants another route to asia, make Spain famous.
Columbus never went to Canada. He never set foot on the Mainland of North America, he was only in the Caribbean Islands.
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.
Asia. He thought he was in India when he landed on Cuba. He never imagained he had found a whole new world.
Answer Columbus was to be made "Admiral of the Seas" and would receive a portion of all profits. The terms were unusually generous. More Information (Credit goes to "Christopher Columbus" related link) According to the contract that Columbus made with King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, if C…olumbus discovered any new islands or mainland, he would receive many high rewards. In terms of power, he would be given the rank of Admiral of the Ocean Sea and appointed Viceroy and Governor of all the new lands. He had the right to nominate three persons, from whom the sovereigns would choose one, for any office in the new lands. He would be entitled to 10% of all the revenues from the new lands in perpetuity; this part was denied to him in the contract, although it was one of his demands. Additionally, he would also have the option of buying one-eighth interest in any commercial venture with the new lands and receive one-eighth of the profits. ( Full Answer )

Christopher Columbus read Marso Polos book and his book inspired him to go west to see if he could get to the spice islands.
Well, his whole journey was to prove that the earth was round and go all the way across the world to China, and come back with Chinese stuff. It WAS a difficult journey, yes indeed. But Christopher C. made it to North America, so if you think about the meaning of his journey, no he wasn't successful…. ( Full Answer )
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.
Columbus set on his famous voyage of discovery with three ships, the Santa Maria, the Pinta and the Nina. The voyage was fairly easy, not least because the ships has the current and the trade winds to help them, and the weather was pleasantly hot. However, the crew nearly mutinied when they feared… "falling of the edge of the world"! ( Full Answer )
the queen of Spain. her name was queen Isabella, and the kings name was Phillipe
At first he wanted to prove that the world is round and he also wanted to get some spice from India
From India he brought slaves, corn, cassava bread, tobbacco, and colorful parrots. He greeted Spain with these new items. 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!
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.
he sufferd through a shot leg a went an extra 6 miles to get medical help
All of them started the voyage, otherwise we would not think of them as his ships. Not all of them got back to Spain, however.
He didn't go around any Continent. There is a stream of water from Europe to the Bahamas that moves ships as they travel. He caught this stream without knowing it and ended up on an island he called Hispaniola. He never knew North America existed.
People in the 1400's didn't have high school. It didn't exist until 400 years later, so he didn't go to high school. He began as a ship's boy and went the school of Navigation by Prince Henry of Portugal.
Columbus started his journey on May 9, 1502 and finished his journey on November 7, 1504
well i know he first sailed to the Canary Islands, owned by Castile, where he reprovisioned and made repairs.
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.
Christopher Columbus expected to find a western route to "the Indies" meaning China, Japan, and other places in south and southeast Asia.
For the same reason that most people do most things; to make a profit, get some money, accomplish something spectacular. In this case, Columbus had figured that instead of sailing south around Africa and then east, he could sail WEST and find a quicker route to China and the "spice islands". Please… remember that in the mid-1400s, spices were worth much MORE than their weight in gold; a successful voyage to China and back, returning with a hold full of spices, could make a captain's fortune. Columbus therefore sailed WEST, into the stormy Atlantic Ocean, looking for his fortune. He didn't find what he was looking for. There's an old joke, which is perfectly true; Columbus left Spain, not knowing where he was going. When he got back, he didn't know where he'd been. And he did it all on borrowed money.

She had no problem paying for Columbus'journey. On the contrary,she was smart enough to only pay him the promised amount a yearlater, in 1493 when he had safely returned, bringing along enoughgold to immediately cover the Queen's expenses for the trip. Isabella did however make problems when Columbu…s claimed 10% of allincome to be made from the New World. Columbus spent the rest ofhis life in ligitation against the Spanish Crown, without everbeing awarded this part of his hoped-for payment. He did not helphis own case by showing gross mismanagement, wholesale theft and areign of terror when he was awarded a Governorship of the islandshe had discovered. Spain had him transported back in chains. ( Full Answer )
