      People think Columbus discovered the New World, but the Vikings discovered the New World first. Christopher was only 14 when he went out to sea for his first time. Columbus made 4 voyages to the New World. On the first and second voyages, no women were allowed to go aboard the ships. Horses came to the New World on Christopher’s second voyage. In Europe, Columbus introduced tobacco to the people there because the Indians used it in America. On the first journey, all the ships weren’t any longer than the length of a tennis court and the width of about 30 feet. The Santa Maria had 40 men on board, the Pinta had 26 men on board and the Nina had 24 men on board. Columbus had 2 sons. His first son was named Diego, he was born in 1480. In 1488, Columbus’ second son was born. His name was Ferdinand. Christopher’s original name was Cristoforo Colombo. Columbus was born in 1451 in Genoa, Italy. In 1479, Columbus married Felipa Perestrello Moniz. On Christopher’s first voyage, he left with three ships on August 3, 1492. On September 25, 1493, Columbus left the port of Cadiz, Spain on his second voyage. Columbus set sail on May 30, 1498 along with six ships for the beginning of his third voyage. Columbus journeyed once again with four ships on May 9, 1502. Columbus died on May 20, 1506. He worked in Lisbon as a trader.
