After being denied by King John, he sailed to Spain and asked Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand to pay for his voyage. Columbus was denied many times. 7 years later, as Columbus was about to give up, Queen Isabella said she would fund his voyage. They did not know that the Americas were they, so when the Queen granted Columbus' request they thought he would end up in Asia.

Transcript: Background information: Christopher Columbus was an explorer and navigator who was born in 1451 in the republic of Genoa, Italy. The first time Christopher Columbus went to sea was when he was a teenager. This trip almost cost him his life because he was attacked by French privateers off the coast of Portugal. His ship was burnt down and he was forced to swim to the coast of portugal. In Portugal he settled down with his wife Felipa Perestrello. In 1480 they had a son named Diego. Soon after Felipa Perestrello died and Columbus moved to Spain. In Spain he had a son named Fernando with Beatriz Enriquez de Arana in 1488. First voyage to the new world: Christopher Columbus was rejected several times for his idea of a three ship "voyage of discovery" where he went westward to find a different way of getting to Japan. He was financed in 1492 by the Spanish Monarchy of Isabella of Castille and Ferdinand of Aragon. In the August of 1492 he set sail in the Santa Maria with the Pinta and Nina along side. 36 days past and he and his crew reached the present day Bahamas and claimed them for Spain. Their journy also reached cuba and hispaniola. He set sail for home with the two other ships besides the Santa Maria because it was wrecked and it was salvaged to make the settlement Villa de la Navidad (Christmas town). Queen Isabella made him the ruler of the lands he discovered. She was very pleased with his discoveries. A lot of people were excited to go with Columbus on his next trip. They were hoping to find gold and riches. The next year (1493) he set sail with a crew of 1500 men and 17 ships. His exploration lead him to other islands, to Honduras, the coast of Florida, Venezuela and Panama. Columbus and his crew did not find a lot of gold while out there and some of the crew said that Columbus was a cruel leader. This got him put into jail back in Spain. Queen Isabella later set him free however. He went back to Hispaniola to live. He was wealthy but not in the best health. He passed away in 1506. Everyone remembered him as the man who discovered the Americas. He eventually settled down in Portugal and married Felipa Perestrello. They had a son in 1480 named Diego. Felipa Perestrello died not long after. Christopher moved to spain soon after. He had another son with Beatriz Enriquez de Arana in 1488.

Transcript: Christopher Columbus Columbus Day is a observance honoring Christopher Columbus's first voyage to the Americas in 1492. The holiday is observed in the United States by banks, the post office and most governments and schools, while most businesses remain open. Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) was an Italian explorer who sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in 1492, hoping to find a route to India (in order to trade for spices). He made a total of four trips to the Caribbean and South America during the years 1492-1504. Columbus Day first became an official state holiday in Colorado in 1906, and became a federal holiday in 1937. However, people have celebrated Columbus's voyage since the colonial period. Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the New World on October 12, 1492. It was unofficially celebrated in a number of cities and states as early as the 18th century but did not become a federal holiday until the 1937 In the context of emerging western imperialism and economic competition between European kingdoms seeking wealth through the establishment of trade routes and colonies, Columbus' far-fetched proposal to reach the East Indies by sailing westward received the support of the Spanish crown, which saw in it a promise, however remote, of gaining the upper hand over rival powers in the contest for the lucrative spice trade with Asia. Though Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas (having been preceded by the Norse expedition led by Leif Ericson), Columbus' voyages led to the first lasting European contact with America, inaugurating a period of European exploration and colonization of foreign lands that lasted for several centuries. canadians do not celebrate columbus day. columbus day is celebrated in other countries. not jsut the united states. During his first voyage in 1492, instead of reaching Japan as he had intended, Columbus landed in the Bahamas archipelago, at a locale he named San Salvador. Over the course of three more voyages, Columbus visited the Greater and Lesser Antilles, as well as the Caribbean coast of Venezuela and Central America, claiming them for the Spanish Empire.
Transcript: After his startling surprise, Christopher headed west for the hope of better luck. In 1498, Christopher sailed west again for the third time where he visited Trinidad and South America before returning once again to the ill fated Hispaniola Islands. Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa in about 1451. On October 12, 1492 Christopher Columbus and his crew reached the Bahamian Islands after setting sale in three ships on August 3, 1492. Christopher's main goals was to find spices, precious stones, gold and silver. About six months after that in September 1493 Christopher and his crew returned to the Americas where he found the Hispaniola settlement destroyed. To this day, no one knows who or where the person is that done it. After returning empty handed, Christopher died in 1506. Christopher Columbus By: Jeremy Dixon & Miguel Villarruel The name of the three ships was the Nina, Pinta and the Santa Maria. http://www.history.com/topics/christopher-columbus In 1502 Christopher was cleared of some significant charges. Then he begged for the Spanish King to pay for another trip across the Atlantic. Which he did and Christopher ended up being forced to abandon two ships due to hostile natives after reaching The Pacific Ocean. This was after first reaching Panama. Christopher Columbus had a main goal to find a direct water route between Europe and Asia during the years of 1492 and 1502.

Christopher Columbus was not the first person to theorize that you could reach Asia by sailing west.
