Christopher Columbus Sets Sail

Christopher Columbus was born in 1451 in the Italian Seaport of Genoa. He wanted to find Japan to get gold. Also he wanted to get spices from India. Columbus thought he could save time by sailing west across the Atlantic Ocean.

Shipwrecked

He lost a ship so he left them on an island. When he came back he was told they ransacked villages and stole wives, so they were killed. Also, he never found Japan, but found Cuba (Calba).
