Christopher Colombus

A biography

By: Nathan Streu

Christopher Colombus was born in Spain on October 31, 1451 and died in May 20, 1506. He died a famous explorer to who some believe found the Americas but as of today we only believe that he found the Caribbean islands just outside of the Americas. It was still a very big discovery for the Spanish back home because it showed that there was people and more land in the world than they already knew. The Spanish also gained resources they didn't have, such as indian jewels, art, and clothing but mainly spices.

although not finding the Americas he is still a very good explorer, not the best of the time but pretty good.
