On this day in 1492, Columbus sailed to look for that passage to India. As we know, he found something totally different.

Many years later, Christopher Columbus landed in South America, or around what is modern day Venezuela. He thought that it was an island and named it Isla Santa.

Columbus’ life had its ups and downs. He discovered the New World but died not knowing that.

Well, we’re glad that he sailed many years ago.  He found the island of Cuba!
