Sailing by boat and traveling by land from Spain to Asia was a long trip. Let’s look at a map to see how long the trip was.


South carolina explorers

Columbus thought he could get to Asia much faster if he sailed across the Atlantic Ocean. So, the king and queen of Spain (monarchs) paid for the trip. Let’s look at a map to see if Columbus was correct.

Was Christopher Columbus correct?

No!!!

Where did he land?

Christopher Columbus landed on the continent of North America.

After Columbus, explorers from Spain, France, and England came in search of new lands and new treasures on this newly discovered continent. Many of these explorers came to South Carolina.

What ever happened between the Native Americans and the Europeans?

At first, many of the Native Americans and Europeans were nice to each other. They had a good trading relationship. The Europeans wanted furs while the Native Americans wanted guns, knives, and other manufactured goods.


South carolina explorers

Later on, the trading relationship between these two groups worsened when the Europeans began treating the Native Americans unfairly.

Also, conflicts over land ownership and land use grew worse as settlers began moving onto Native American hunting grounds.


South carolina explorers

The Native Americans didn’t want anybody owning the land, but the Europeans wanted to claim it for themselves.

One group of Native Americans that was greatly effected by this was the Yemassee. The Yemassee went to war with the Europeans. Because of this, many people died on both sides.


South carolina explorers

Finally, the Native Americans and the Europeans agreed on a truce and the war was over.

After the war, many more Native Americans began to die because of the infectious diseases brought over by the Europeans.
