Convinced his exploration had reached Asia, he set sail for home with the two remaining ships. The practice of slavery was common and legal in Europe at the time, and was very lucrative. Their is always some crazy fringe that wants to make ridiculus claims that they can not back up, they are just that- ridiculus. We prefer a more sophisticated discource here. For example, he made friends with a local chieftain on the Island of Hispaniola named Guacanagari because.
To do so is to validate their crazy and misguided claims. This is what we call piracy, and a pirate, you know, is thought to be a very wicked man. Watch a documentary on this very site called, Ice age Columbus: who where the first Americans, and you will see this is probably true. As to the pillaging he only pointed the way for the conquistadores that followed. He cleaned and straightened out the snarled-up wool that was cut from the sheep so as to make it ready to be woven into cloth. In this long list, you can find works in different literary forms, not just in English but in many other languages of the world, composed by a diverse and interesting array of authors. Fourth and final voyage Convincing King Ferdinand that one more voyage would bring the abundant riches promised, Columbus went on what would be his last voyage in 1502, traveling along the eastern coast of Central America in an unsuccessful search for a route to the Indian Ocean.
As far as you being offended by my last post about the Native Americans, I told you that was not my arguement but a Native Americans. You are obviously picking an argument for the sake of it, you know what the deal is, I know what the deal is. There, awaiting the gallows, he plotted what he called his most treacherous voyage - one that ended with the loss of all four of his ships and left Columbus and his crew shipwrecked with little hope of survival. He was a slave trader who heartlessly took men and women away from their families in order to lessen his failure to find a new trade route. I would be happy to just continue believing what I learned in grammar school about Columbus, and leave it at that.
He had been captain of a number of vessels; he had sailed north and south and east; he knew all about a ship and all about the sea. He was also a cheapskate. This is undeniable, but it was also unintentional and would have happened eventually anyway. Reasons Voice i feel this discourse is healthy, you as a third party could have brought resolve, but u picked a side; that's not sophisticated. These so-called Liberal organizations are in reality Fascist organizations hiding behind a mask of Liberal-Progressive agendas.
And when he got back his stories were so very surprising that men were all the more anxious to find a way to sail in their ships to Cathay and see it for themselves. Changing history is not acceptable whether we agree with it or not. It was a beautiful city in the northwestern part of the country called Italy. In it, he described the collapse of the non-European population. It breaks my heart to see all of the above, when I read here, but I just shake my head and mourn the collapse of the educational systems in English-speaking nations, which have failed to teach the people of two generations how to write properly. The idea of capitolism began to replace merchantilism. However I hate to break it to you but those oppressors are long dead and gone.
To some, he was an intrepid explorer, following his instincts to a New World. Why was he put into chains? But when Columbus was a boy it was even worse than now, for no one really knew how long Africa was, or whether ships really could sail around it. Even though he was not successful in doing what he set out to do, he did do remarkable things. Communications, which is my field of study, doesn't always start peaceful but through intellectual discourse by both parties it will end peacefully if intentions are sincere. In his 20s he moved to Lisbon, Portugal, and later resettled in Spain, which remained his home base for the duration of his life.
If you don't like my attitude perhaps you shouldn't start your comments to me with,. Sure they knew their was other lands, that is a far cry from saying they knew the position or nature of the North American continent. It was a beautiful city in the northwestern part of the country called Italy. Some historians decided to dig up a few true events that happened during Columbus's conquest of the americas, as well as few character traits of a man living in a chaotic historical period, and suddenley all these opinions surface about him, debating on weather hes the good, the bad, or the ugly. Did you even check the references? Ask any African that knows the true history of their tribe. I condemn all acts of evil whether native, european, or african. Or continue it is quite entertaining actually.
This was thought to be a great journey. Many contemporary nautical experts disagreed. When he was a little boy he lived in Genoa. Besides I would not say they praised Columbus at all in this documentary, they plainly showed his short comings. And who cares about the vikings, Europeans didn't discover anything first, all they did was re-discover what the original man has known for thousands of years. Negative actions aren't always the catalyst for the destruction of something, and some things are built upon, not always in place of.
