Christopher Columbus’ Four Voyages across the Atlantic Ocean 1492-1504.
In 1450s Europeans tried to find a sea route to India and China – treasuries of silk, spices, and precious stones. By studying sea routes of previous explores, Christopher Columbus, an Italian navigator, developed a plan of traveling to the Indies by sailing west across the Atlantic Ocean. And this very idea of finding a western route to the Orient was encouraged by Spanish monarchs Ferdinand II and Isabella I.
Columbus departed from Palos on August 3, 1492. He was on board the Santa Maria, followed by two other ships: the Pinta and the Nina. This first voyage across the Atlantic Ocean lasted five weeks. The land was sighted on October 12, 1429. Columbus called the sighted island San Salvador (it is now known as the Bahamas). As the journey continued, Columbus explored other islands in the region and even landed on the northeast coast of Cuba. Everywhere he met peaceful and friendly indigenous people.
Columbus’ second voyage started in September of 1493 and ended in August of 1494. The following islands were sighted and named: Saint Kitts, San Cristobal, Santa Cruz, the Virgin Islands and others. With his men Columbus studied the climate and geography of the newly found islands, as well as he made an attempt of colonizing the region by establishing a number of settlements.
The third voyage to the New World started in May 1498 and ended on August of the same year. During this trip Columbus led his to the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Trinidad, and the mainland of South America. However, he continued to believe that it was China, rather than a totally new continent.
Columbus started his fourth voyage in May of 1502. He was accompanied on this voyage by his brother Bartholomew and 13-year-old son Fernando. During this journey Columbus survived a hurricanes, and his four ships suffered a minor damage. He sailed to Central America, stopping at Jamaica, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Panama. In Panama Columbus established a garrison, which was later attacked by the natives. These hostile natives damaged the ships. For a year Columbus and his men tried to restore the ships, fought hunger, and made attempts to befriend with natives. Help finally arrived in summer of 1504.
Christopher Columbus was given the rank of Admiral of the Atlantic Ocean and appointed Governor of all the new lands. Nowadays the citizens of the Americans celebrate Columbus Day on October 12.
