On October 12, 1492, Columbus landed at a small island in the Bahamas, which many think was Watling Island, later renamed San Salvador Island in honor of the event.
On an island he named "San Salvador" somewhere in the modern day Bahamas. One location (Cat Island) was renamed San Salvador, but in 1925 this name was given to a different island (Watlings Island) based on the reexamination of historical evidence.
October 12, 1492 We have spotted land! I have named it San Salvador. I believe that Japan is only a short distance to the west. [Editor's note: Columbus landed in the Bahamas south of Florida. He believed that he was on islands off the coast of Japan.] There are strange looking people here, very… different from my men and me. They wear little clothing and are of a different color. Our giant ships with enormous white sails amaze them. These Indians are not what I expected, and there are no cities of gold like Marco Polo described. [Editor's note: Columbus had actually met members of the Taino tribe, but he believed he was in the Indies. This is why he called them Indians.] I spotted several of them wearing GOLD! They tell me that islands to the north and south are where the gold will be found, so I ordered my men to set sail for the gold! ( Full Answer )

With the idea of discovering a new sea route to the Indies,Columbus set sail. Once landing on San Salvador, he made contactwith the inhabitants and named them Indies. It is believed believedby many historians that Columbus made set anchor in the New Worldon the island of San Salvador, on the 12th of… October, 1492. Today,some historians are not sure that the first landing was on SanSalvador. Regardless, it was in that area that Columbus claimed the"New World" for Spain.

He did not actually land on a state, but rather in what is now the Dominican Republic.
Columbus's initial 1492 voyage came at a critical time of growing national imperialism and economic competition between developing nation states seeking wealth from the establishment of trade routes and colonies. In this sociopolitical climate, Columbus's far-fetched scheme won the attention of Isab…ella I of Castle. Severely underestimating the circumference of the Earth, he estimated that a westward route from Iberia to the Indies would be shorter than the overland trade route through Arabia. If true, this would allow Spain entry into the lucrative spice trade - heretofore commanded by the Arabs and Italians. Following his plotted course, he instead landed within the Bahamas Archipelago at a locale he named San Salvador . Mistaking the lands he encountered for the East Indies, he referred to the inhabitants as "indios". ( Full Answer )

He sailed west accross Atlantic assuming that he would reach Asia and the East Indies from the opposite direction to that normally travelled. He had both underestimated the size of the earth and did not know that a huge land mass (America) and other islands lie in between his intended route.
christopher as you know was trying to find a fast route to India by going west instead of eats because he believed the world was round, (everbody else thought the world was flat, and it was possible to fall off the edge of the world) but they didnt know north America exsisted to he stubled across it… by mstake, were learning about this whoel thing in social this year in high school, but if you also research his journal he stated that on october 12th 1492 he found north America. i hope this clears things up for you. :) ( Full Answer )

Christopher Columbus was not looking for a new land. He was looking for a new ROUTE from one known land (Europe) to another known land (the Spice Islands). . The old route was around the tip of Africa and was a very long journey. He reasoned that the world was like a ball not flat, and if he went a…round the ball in the opposite direction the journey would be shorter. He ran into a couple of continents that were in his way by accident. His mistake was in thinking the ball was smaller than it really was. ( Full Answer )

Yes. In 1492 Columbus sailed across the Atlantic Ocean with three boats, the Santa Maria, the Pinta, and the Nina. He and his crew were trying to find India. Where he landed was what we now call the United States of America.
India, this is why Native Americans are called Indians. Columbus made a rather bad mistake is his distance calculations.
CC was born in the city of Genoa in the Republic of Genoa in the northern part of the Italian peninsula.

Christopher Columbus landed on North America. However, he thought it was India. That is why Native Americans were falsely called Indians.
Actually he tried to find an alternative route to India but discovered America.the queen paid him money to find these lands

They are very rare, were made in both silver and Gold varieties. The guns on the turrets were concealed, by the way- and the Battleship had 4 stacks. ( Full Answer )
There are a lot of arguments about where Columbus landed first. It was for sure an island near San Salvador and Cuba, though.
He opened the doorway for more europeans to come to the Americas and spred disease & start wars & enslave the natives.. & then turn around and act like they are the only ones that belong in the US & start kicking out people who's anceastors have been here for many thousands of years
Christopher Columbus found Hispaniola south of what is now the U.S. which later led to the discovery of the U.S. by Amerigo Vespucci. "America" is named after "Amerigo", though it is miss leading when people say Columbus found America if you consider America as the continent, North America, or th…e country The United States of America. It is still disputed over who should get more credit when the U.S.A. recognizes Columbus Day. ( Full Answer )
India , but he ended up in America/West Indies, hence the name the West Indies ;)
Columbus wasn't the explorer who "found" America. The Native Americans were. They used a land bridge made from glaciers. Columbus was thinking he was in India (the spice land).
Christopher Columbus' voyages were financed by the Crown of Castile, which later became part of the Kingdom of Spain, and he sailed under the flag of that kingdom. So the lands he discovered, he discovered for Castile.
he used three ships-the nina, pinta and santa maria which were given to him by the king and queen of spain
There were no "developments". He left 39 men on the island and when he returned they were all dead. He was a failure in Spain because he didn't return with gold or a route to India and few knew he had left. He added very little knowledge to the knowledge base or maps.
