In 1492, Christopher Columbus set sail across the Atlantic Ocean in search of the Indies. He had spent much time trying to convince King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain to pay for the ships that would have him bringing them all of the finest riches in India. This would be a difficult journey because Columbus would have to sail west to reach the Indies in the east. The King and Queen finally agreed and gave Columbus three ships, the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. After a difficult voyage, Columbus and his three ships landed. Believing he had landed in India he named the native people there Indians. Columbus actually landed on an island south of North America, known as San Salvador. This “mistake” in which he discovered the Americas opened the doors to future European exploration. Christopher Columbus
