Transcript of Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus Life and Voyages Early Life When he was 25 he went sailing with a small crew for fun. While he was sailing, an enemy ship shot his down. His whole crew died and he was injured. He jumped of the ship and grabbed a floating oar and peddled to land, which was Portugal. He stayed at Portugal for 9 years. When he got there he opened a shop next to the coast. The First Expedition
Since they did not get what they were looking for, they left. The natives offered some supplies for the rest of their trip. Columbus and his crew also took some natives with them too.

Next, Christopher Columbus sailed to Hispaniola. There he found some gold.

When Christopher Columbus got back to Spain He told everybody that he found land. They later figured out that that was not the way to the Indies. Columbus kept trying to find a quicker way to the west indies but he just couldn't find one.
When he got back to Spain he told everyone that he found the Americas. A couple months later he fell sick.
While he was sick the natives from San Salvador killed 13 of the king and queen's guards. Because of Columbus' sickness he passed away. The Final Voyage Who Was Born to Discover Americas? Christopher Columbus Christopher Columbus was born in the Republic of Genoa, Italy.
He was born on October 31, 1451.
He loved to sail because he was born right next to the sea. The King and Queen of Spain said no many times, but at the last second they agreed. Christopher asked the king and queen of Spain to pay for his travels. He was trying to find a western route, a quicker trade route, to get spices and riches for Spain and impress the monarchs who had sent him. Columbus believed the Atlantic Ocean was much smaller than it really was. Hence when he reached land he believed he had reached the East Indies. It turned out to be San Salvador. The leader led them to the city. Christopher was surprised that there was not any gold in sight. Once again he gained the trust of the king and queen of Spain. He tried again, but this time he found the Americas. He met natives there who were called Arwaks. King Ferdinand ordered Columbus and his men to kill the Arwaks and take the spices and gold. On the way back his crew faced and enormous storm and one of his ships sank. His effort was plagued by further storms and doldrums, making his final voyage the most harrowing of all.
