Hello I'm Christopher Columbus. Right now I am sailing on the Santa Maria.
I think I should go west instead of east, plus its not like we are going to get lost at sea
I don't know young man, but I think we should claim this land for England.
What is this place!?!
This is Christopher Columbus. He was from Italy but, he was commissioned by the Spanish king/queen.
Yes Sir! It's called the Americas and I think we should claim it for England.
So you found new land for England?
Christopher Columbus was trying to get to Asia. He sailed out of Sapin going west instead of east to get to Asia.
It's ok don't cry we will be ok.
I don't think we can go any further...
Christopher's trips were important because he made four trips across the Atlantic Ocean from Spain: in 1492, 1493, 1498 and 1502. He was determined to find a direct water route west from Europe to Asia, but he never did. Instead, he accidentally stumbled upon the Americas.
Christopher Columbus did discover "new land." On his trip he accidentally stumbled upon the Americas. Though he did not really “discover” the New World, millions of people already lived there, some say his journeys marked the beginning of centuries.
When Christopher Columbus came to the America it was doom for the indigenous people. Native societies were universally destroyed or at least greatly altered. A great example of this is how Columbus overthrew the Aztec empire and created New Spain.
This is the example of the Aztecs being overthrown.
Christopher Columbus was determined to find a direct water route west from Europe to Asia, but he never did. At first Christopher tried to get to Asia by land which did not work. Then he tried to go on boat and got close , but failed once again.
