Columbus Took Sail From Shore in 1494
It was August, 3, 1492 when I set sail from Spain to find a water route to Asia. I was on the ship known as the Santa Maria when on a long journey for 2 months me and my crew finally found land, we arrived on the land and called in San Salvador. We then left the island and for about 5 months we studied parts of the Caribbean. When I arrived back in Spain I wrote a letter to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella the two people who funded my expedition. I asked King Ferdinand for one more expedition in 1502 and he accepted my request. My expedition failed and I then returned back in 1504.
