Christopher Columbus

In the 1400's, Christopher Columbus begged and asked the King of Spain for money and a boat to travel to the west of the word to get to India, because of the terrible seas of Africa. The people did not agree with Christopher Columbus because they did not know what was on the west of the world. When Christopher Columbus reached land he thought he was in India and started calling central Americans - Indians.

Christopher Columbus was the first European to sail across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americans and returned back to Europe. Until now people had thought the only continents were Europe, Asia and Africa. Hundreds of years later The Europeans discoverd the Pacific Ocean. The land that Christopher Columbus discovered named ''New World'' was now called America because it wasn't a part of Aisa
