He was born in Genoa, Italy during the time period between August 26th - October 31st
Things He did
Columbus didn't "discover" America, he never set foot in North America. During Four seperate trips that started in 1492, Columbus landed on various Caribbean islands that are now the Bahamas as well as the island later called Hispaniola. He also explored the Central and South American coasts. He did make the first connection between Europe and Americas.
Columbus as a Human
Just like everyone else. Very energized and enthusiastic also sometimes doubtfull and discouraging.
The image above is the path Christopher Columbus took when he traveled. He actually wasn't even looking for the Americas he was looking for a sea route to China, India, and the fabled gold and spice islands of Asia. As we know he didnt find that but he found something more important to human existence.
