After they explored all the islands and found lots of goods, such as gold, tobacco, and some spices, on the return trip back to Spain was really tough for Columbus and his crew members, because on the way back, the Santa Maria ship (The one captained by Columbus) was wrecked and the captain of The Pinta sailed off and tried to beat Columbus back to Spain. Columbus returned to Spain in the Nina, arriving on March 15, 1493. When Christopher Columbus landed in America, he thought he was the first person to discover it, and thats what alot of people still believe today, but that is not entirely true. Before Christopher Columbus arrived to America, a viking named Leif Eriksson was really the one who discovered America, and many other countries also claim that they discovered America way before Columbus. He wasn't even the first European explorer to set foot in
There was a storm coming and I warned Governor Niclous Ovando about the storm but he did not adhere to my warning and he lost twenty-four ships, and he also denied me entry to the port of Santo Domingo, my ships got damaged but we repaired them. I had built a garrison in Panama, which was attacked by Indians on April 6th; here I lost one ship and a number of men. I was denied entry to Hispaniola because the natives said that my administration was ineffective and cruel, but I went anyway. We lost a lot of men and all four ships in the fourth voyage and I did not find a passage to the west. I believe that the islands of the Caribbean are part of the Asian Continent.

He established a fort out of the ship-wrecked Santa Maria and left a portion of the crew behind as he set sail for Spain.
It is the adventure of an expedition of 300 men, ladies, and oppressed Africans who set sail from Spain in 1528 under the authority of Pánfilo de Narváez (long-lasting opponent of Hernán Cortés) bearing in mind the end goal of asserting and settling Florida. Yet, a typhoon, lost boats, navigational blunders, initiative indiscretions, and difficulties from Indians well fit for holding off would-be European victory indicated Goliath debacle. Undertaking individuals wound up meandering along the Gulf Coast before taking to the water on high-quality flatboats which at last appeared on the Texas coast, the course of which their numbers quickly reduced as they succumbed to suffocating, drying out, starvation, and barbarianism (by their kindred castaways). An insignificant four survivors—Cabeza de Vaca, Alonso del Castillo, Andrés Dorantes, and an oppressed Moor referred to just as Estebanico—got away passing just when they discovered sustenance as hostages, workers, and, later, healers among Indians who at last drove them crosswise over present-day southwestern United States and northern Mexico into Spanish-held region in Nueva Galicia eight years after the fact (in
The next day, he gave his son a pouch that held three ancient Spanish gold coins.” Santiago's father selfishness prepared him for the journey ahead and is considered as one of the helpers. Another person that qualifies as the helper of Santiago’s journey would be the Crystal Merchant.

As an elated Henry boarded the ship, he felt lucky. Fortuitous, in a sense that, he was a part of this historic occasion: the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic. Indeed, a lucky man he was, as the tickets he had bought for himself, his wife and two young daughters, to travel to the Caribbean, were originally for a different liner. Disagreeing with that ship's policy of not allowing children in the dining hall, Henry was, therefore, transferred to the Titanic, which would take him to New York City. From there, Henry and his family would board another vessel to the Caribbean.
Settlers first reached Virginia in 1606 to compete with the Spanish for gold and natural resources, but also find a passage to the Indies. They first started as a joint-stock company. The first years of establishment were harsh because of disease and food going rotting, leading to starvation. When John Smith took charge in 1608, he had the colony stop endlessly searching for gold. Despite Smith’s efforts, only sixty colonists out of the four hundred survived the “Starving time” winter.
The legacy of Christopher Columbus and his voyages states that he crossed the Atlantic Ocean trying to get to India and China when he stumbled upon a new place, which called the New World. He was born to make history in which he starts off his voyages so that people will remember all the good he did. October 12, the day for the whole Americans to have a one-day off. Anti-Semitism, revulsion and discrimination of Christopher Columbus, has troubled the native Indians people for such a long time.
