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 )
He was trying to sail around the globe to India (to the west instead of the east because he wanted to prove that the world was round, not flat) but he hit, what is known, as Cuba (Everyone thought America didn't exist).
Oh my!!! I just can't bring myself to even attempt to explain.. And on a lighter note... . He tied up at Ellis Island, paid tribute to the many migrants over the years, took a quick trip to Greenwich Village where he ate a bagel and a moment's silence at the Stonewall Cafe, for old times sake, and… took the subway up to Times Square to take in a couple of shows on Broadway.

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 )

Christopher Columbus left Spain with three ships. Two of his shipsended up making the voyage to the Americas. The ships were calledthe Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. The Nina was lost and thewreckage was only recently discovered.
He set out from Spain on August 3, 1492, to sail west to find a short cut to the East Indies in three ships, the Santa MarÃa, the Pinta (the Painted) and the Santa Clara, nicknamed NiÃ±a.

He went to the Bahamas because he thought he was going to what theEuropeans called the Indies in Asia. They wanted gold, silk, and and other things from the Indies. They didn't even know about North America.

I collect these clocks. The value depends on the condition, and the variation of the clock. If the clock is in fair condition the value would be about $100. Excellent condition with the acorn weights and time weight would be about $150 to $200. If it has the advertising plate or has an original ship…ping create, someone may be willing to offer $300 at auction. . the "Columbus Clock" was manufactured starting in about 1892 by "The Bostwick and Burgess Mfg. Co.", located in Norwalk, Ohio. They made between 10,000 and 20,000 of the clocks and they were sold at the Chicago Columbian Exposition in 1893, which was the first Worlds Fair. It is believed that they originally sold for $5.oo. By the end of the fair it is reported that they were selling for $1.oo each. . Darrell ( Full Answer )

He believed he had found India and named the native people living there Indian's. Columbus had not reached India as he thought but had reached Central America.
he was trying to find a quick route to Asia, and when he landed in America he mistook it for India.
India, this is why Native Americans are called Indians. Columbus made a rather bad mistake is his distance calculations.
Nobody actually sent him. He wanted to find a faster route to Asia so he asked kings and queens to fund him. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella gave him the money and Christopher promised them riches to spread Christianity around.
his original plan was to find asia for the so called gold streets and treasure
There are a lot of arguments about where Columbus landed first. It was for sure an island near San Salvador and Cuba, though.
the challenges that christopher colmbus had was all the sicknes that was on the ship tyhat they were traveling in and also the lack of food aand water
he used three ships-the nina, pinta and santa maria which were given to him by the king and queen of spain
He is known as a Master Mariner, the First European to Understand that there are "Rivers of Wind". These are the "Trade Winds" that circle North and South of the Equator, in the Tropical Ocean Basins. The North Equatorial Trade Winds Circle Counter Clockwise, Opposite for the South Equatorials. Colu…mbus sailed South, then West to America, then North, then East to Europe, downwind all the Way, by Riding the North Atlantic Equatorial Cyclone. Pure Science. Parallel to the Equator, 10 degrees North or South, the Trades are Easterly, they blow from East to West. 30 degrees N or S the trades are Westerly. ( Full Answer )

East India. He did not know that America would be in the way, andnot knowing about the pacific ocean, thought that India would befound in about the same place as America turned out to be.
The exact location of Columus's first landing site is in dispute.His biographer claims to have recounted from Columus's journal theisland was called Lucayos. In any event, most historians agree thathe landed on one of the islands in the Bahamas.
