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).
He thought he was traveling to the Indies, but he landed in the Bahamas. . He also traveled to Cuba.
He found goods, a new world, gold, and slaves. Christopher Columbus learned about the sea, because he grew up in a major port city. He was fourteen years of age when he first sailed, mostly on trading routs, some as far as Iceland. He had an excellent education, resulting in his being able to spe…ak several languages as an adult. In 1480, he married Filipa Moniz Perestrello, and they had a son named Diego together. When Filipa's father died in 1457, he left papers and charts to Filipa and her mother. These where the documents that sparked Christopher's first interest in traveling across the Atlantic Ocean. He had also met a Spanish Captain that had sailed to the island where he lived. The Captain told him many interesting stories about where he was from and how he had gotten there. Before he died, the captain also gave Columbus the chart of where the route he had taken. After that, he went on some Portuguese voyages to Africa. By the year 1475, he had learned the art and theory of navigation. ( Full Answer )
Columbus made 4 voyages to south and central America when accually he was trying to get to the spice islands and japan.
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 )
What were the names of the 3 ships Christopher Columbus led in his discovery of da Americas in 1492?
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.
there were 87 people, they died from not eating enough fruit and vegies sooo about 20 people were sick about 9 died.
Mean kings, rough waters, and whiny sailors. He also got stuck in the Bermuda triangle.
The exact place is in dispute, but it was somewhere in the Bahamasor the Turks and Caicos islands.
because the europeans were lookin for a new trade route to Asia because the ottomans tok over the one that they had been using and forced tehm to find a new way either across the Atlantic or around the tip of Africa
Columbus discovered the virgin islands in 1492 and who ever is reading this u should kno that
Columbus found gold items, animals, and Indian people. After King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella saw everything they paid for a second expedition.
Christopher Columbus, under the backing of the Spanish crown, sailed west to find a shorter way to sail to India. He unknowingly discovered the New World. The reason that he called the Native Americans "Indians" was because he mistakenly thought he was in India.
Christopher Columbus sailed from Italy to Portugal as a teenager.This voyage ended in shipwreck. He did not sail again until 1492.
well... Columbus sailed from Spain, to the place called San Salvador(El salvador) it is about 5261.96 miles long.../.
Christopher Columbus Didn't Turn So He Didn't make to the indies he made it to what we call the Caribbeans . AKA He didn't turn so he didn't get to the indies .
It wasnt he was using mobile phones and computers with his cooker on all day long a 50" tv for the lads and 5 dishwashers - and he was using cheap nasty petrol to power his Boeing 747 ! AMG WTF
It is necessary to pack many supplies. Some food and drinks we are taking would be water, wine, olive oil, rice, matchlocks cheese, honey, and sea biscuits. The weapons we are bringing involve Swords, pikes, and matchlocks.
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 )
On christopher Columbus's 1st voyage he landed in the Americas which he thought was India
He brought . 40 men on the Santa Maria, 26 on the Pina, 24 on Nina. 85 were Spanish, 4 from Italy, 1 from Portugal. There were 4 criminals and 25 cats. They brought disease to the New World and the possibility of more explorers.
the trip was long and hard it was raining alot so it wasdifficult for him and his crew.
Columbus Set sail because we wanted to find a new route to Asia and to prove that the world is round (back then people thought the world was flat and you would fall off the edge if you went far enough). He made the last few voyages to discover new Islands and for goods like spices and gold
I think the positive is that they found new lands (for them), i.e. America to explore. The negatives are his participation in slavery, the spreading of disease, the dislocation and death of hundreds of thousands of American Indians. The hundreds of lies we were taught growing up about how Columbus w…as the first to discover America and that relations between Columbus and "Native" Americans was a great symbiotic relationship... Sorry, could not think of too many positives because there are not many. ( Full Answer )
He didn't make it to the Indies and only was at sea for 36 days when he landed on Hispaniola.
Yes, The crew was going to throw him over board. He gave them a deal after 3 days if they had not found land he would turn back. You might want to know Why his crew went to mutiny: They were scared, sea sick, tired, hungry(The rats ate food, and what little food they didn't eat was filled with worms…) and homesick. They were tired of Columbus lieing to them. ( Full Answer )
He went westbound in search of a safe and quicker route to Asia. Cathay (China, according to PLATO)

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.
India, this is why Native Americans are called Indians. Columbus made a rather bad mistake is his distance calculations.
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 made his trip in 1492. A good way to remember it is..... Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492.
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 trip was pretty successful for the Spaniards and all of Europe. They basically took over the land, resources and the people of north, central and south America. Although Christopher Colombus got fame in Europe he didn't became as wealthy as other people such as Hernan Cortez.
Yes, the trip was very dangerous - the crew faced storms, calm seas (a major problem when you rely on the wind to move you forward), disease, short rations and almost mutiny.
Queen Isabella and king Ferdinand of spain agreed to pay for ships for Christopher Columbus's trip.
King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain paid for his trip. They said no the first time then Columbus persuaded them to. They said yes the second time. Christopher Columbus' son was named after King Ferdinand.
There are a lot of arguments about where Columbus landed first. It was for sure an island near San Salvador and Cuba, though.
Christopher Culumbus didn't set out to discover America he was on a trip to India to try and bring Gold back to spain, on this trip columbus proved that the world was round and very very large . :0
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.
yes, Columbus set sail for the first time in 1492, with the Pinta,the Nina and the Santa Maria (flagship)
Queen Isabella send Christopher Columbus on a mission to find awestern route the China to Asia (China, India, etc.)
Because,in the olden days,People thought that the earth was flat.So,when he told The Kings That it was round,They refused to believehim so they didn't give him money
