When he was a child his father pushed him into a career of business. He began to sail on the trading ships and worked for Spinola and other families. During this he examined the sky and found that the stars were never the same and by this he drew the conclusion that the world was round.
After pleading with the King and the Queen for several years to get the ships to go to Asia, finally he got his way the Queen sold all of her Jules to get 3 ships made. Then Christopher went to what he thought was Asia to get more spices faster.
It was a long and hard journey and it got the men mad and annoyed with Columbus . They were tired and were sick of the sea. When they finally got there and met some of the weirdest people you have ever seen!!!!They were naked and were unarmed except tiny spears that were clearly for hunting.
When Columbus arrived he wasn’t the only one around. There originally were native Americans there. Columbus called them Indians because he thought that he was in India. They thought Columbus how to grow corn and stuff. If it hadn't been for the native Americans they never would have survived the winter.
They were greeted with a warm welcome.then the questions came lots of questions came from the Queen and the King.then they all thought he was wrong and that wasn't Asia so this guy Balboa set out to prove Columbus wrong, and it worked…..
Today he is still remembered by people who have coins with something to do with him or visit statues of him.
