How Did Christopher Columbus Second Voyage

Decent Essays
Christopher Columbus embarked on the first of three voyages to the "New World" with three ships — the Niña, Pinta and Santa María — on August 3, 1492. He kept a logbook in which he faked some entries to soothe a mutinous crew, and a private diary in which he detailed the details of the journey that shaped the subsequent history of the western hemisphere. Upon his return to Spain, Columbus presented his record to Queen Isabella I of Castile. She had it copied and retained the original, then gave the copy to Columbus before his second voyage. The whereabouts of the original Spanish text remain a mystery — its location has not been known since

    his journey, Columbus would’ve had to turn back long before reaching his goal of Asia, or he and every man on his ships would have died a quiet death. With that in mind, it is acceptable to say that Christopher Columbus was “lucky” to have encountered America. It goes to show that Columbus may have rushed the voyage and did not fully plan out the proper resources needed for a successful trip.
