Columbus Day

A Brief History

HISTORY BEHIND COLUMBUS

Columbus asked King Ferdinand and Queen Elizabeth for money to sail west to the Indies. Before his plan, people had to sail a long way to get to Asia because of the spices and riches it had to offer. But now, Columbus came up with a way to sail west around the world to get there in a shorter time. People doubted it because they thought the world was flat and he would sail off the Earth. But the King and Queen accepted and he started his voyage with 3 ships. what he didn't realize though as he reached land, that North America was there. He discovered America!

HOW I WILL CELEBRATE

I will celebrate by appreciating everything around me (and staying at home) because it would either be really different here or we wouldn't even exist.
