He is recognized in Asia and America for his 7 brave voyages. Mr. Zheng studied Confucius and Mencius, was very close to the prince. He was very good at military work and excellent at fighting. In the 1390's, he helped the prince launch attacks on the Mongol's. In 1432, his biggest fleet ever was his final voyage to make one final trip around the Indian Ocean. While returning, Zheng He passed away, and his voyagers decided to bury him at sea. Here are the voyages he went on: His Voyages- 1. In 1403, He plans to make a trip around the Indian Ocean and succeeds. He and his whole entire crew receive awards and accolades. 2 and 3rd. After receiving gifts from the chinese emperor, the foreign envoys needed to go home. So, in 1407 another fleet set sail going as far as Ceylon (Now Sri Lanka).

Here at biography. com, you can find great and reliable information on just bout any celebrity or historical figure. Bio.com is a really helpful website because unlike other websites; this one can' be edited by users and viewers. This ensures good information. Also, not only is bio.com a good website the bio channel is a pretty cool channel to watch. History.com is a website I always use to do history reports on. Sometimes I even watch the History channel if they are showing something that I am currently learning about! Here you'll find great info on a lot of things that happened in history! I am sure that you will enjoy it as much as I did! Period: 4 A painting of Zheng He A picture of Vasco da Gama 4th-6th. Zheng he traveled to the Arabian Peninsula and to the horn of Africa; returning to China with lots of goods! On the 5th (1416-19) and 6th (1421-22) travel, they pretty much traveled the same route, collecting tribute from as many as thirty different states and principalities. Vasco da Gama was born around 1460 in Sines, Portugal. He was the first person to sail directly from Europe to India. He enlisted in the Navy where learned to navigate. Da gama went on 2 voyages in his lifetime, but is remembered for his first voyage to India in 1497. While traveling, he rounded the Cape of Good Hope. On his 2nd voyage in 1502, he went to India again with this time, 20 ships. 10 of them in which were under his command. When he came back from both voyages, he received accolades and praises. From there, he moved to Cochin and was married with 6 children. However, he was brought back to Portugal on December 24, 1524 after he died to be buried there. Christopher was born in 1451 in Genoa, Italy. His first voyage was in 1476 to the Atlantic Ocean when his ship was attacked. His boat burned down and he had to swim to Portugal. He then married and had a son. When trying to go on a three-ship voyage he was rejected by Portugal, Venice and Genoa. So then he went to the Spanish monarchy of Isabella of Castille and Ferdinand of Aragon, in 1486. He was allowed to go. Then he set out to find a direct route to Asia on August 3, 1492. He had three ships: The Pinta, The Santa Maria, and The Mayflower. He also had a lot of crewman however they were skeptical about going. However they went hoping to discover land. He later discovered the America’s. Portrait of Mr. Columbus -GradPoint Ferdinand Magellan was born in Sabrosa, Portugal in 1480. Magellan sailed west from Spain in 1520. He encountered and discovered the Philippines; and that, unfortunately, is where he died in 1521. His crew though continued west and made it the first ever circumnavigation on the Earth. This video will explain a little more in detail about him! This is what he looked like! Don't Forget about..... The Colombian Exchange! Something that happened after Columbus, was the Colombian Exchange. it was a way to get goods from Europe, Africa, and Asia to the Americas (and in vice-versa). It was named after Columbus because he was the first to introduce new worl riches to Europe. Traders brought things like, vanilla, corn, and tomatoes to America in exchange for things like bananas, olives, and turnips. This video will explain a little more! This is a picture of Cook! Cook was born in Marton, England in 1728. He enlisted in the British navy and fought in the Seven Years war. His first voyage was to observe the infrequent passage of Venus across the face of the sun. Since, he did study astronomy. So he started out to leave in August, 1768. He went to Rio de Janeiro, Tahiti, New Zealand, and Austalia. On his second voyage he was set to find Terra Australis Incognita, the unknown southern land; in July 1722.
