Christopher Columbus' Voyage
I, Christopher Columbus, was born in Genoa Italy in the year 1451. I lived in Spain, and explored for them. I have had many journeys and have traveled to many different places. I have made 4 large voyages to the Caribbean and South America between 1492 and 1504.
In April 1492, Queen Isabella an d King Ferdinand of Spain agreed to my idea and sponsored me on my voyage.
On my final expedition, I ran into much hurricane troubles. We summoned for help, but waited a year until rescue. After returning to Spain, I learned that I had lost my position as governer of the Indies and chief support from Isabella. I later died on May 20th, 1506.
