I don't feel good right now.

The Impact of Columbus
Christopher Columbus went out to sea to search for a route to the Indies that was quicker and cheaper. At 2:00 AM on October 12, 1492, Columbus found not a route to the Indies but the Bahamas and a new world.
After discovering the New World, Columbus led three more expeditions there and started the Columbian Exchange which was the movement of plants , animals, disease, people, and ways of life between the Eastern and Western Hemisphere.
