					Christopher Columbus was born in
Genoa, Italy in 1451. Living by the
Mediterranean Sea he longed to
be a sailor. He began sailing on
Italian ships at the age of 14.
When Columbus was 25 he was
sailing on a ship headed for
England. A group of French pirates
attacked his ship. Columbus was
hurt, but managed to grab onto
some floating wood and make his
way to shore
This little poem has been known for years. It was
made in the years after Columbus had died.

  In fourteen hundred and ninety-two,
  Columbus sailed the ocean blue.
  He took three ships with him, too,
  And called aboard his faithful crew.
  Mighty, strong and brave was he
  As he sailed across the open sea.
   In 1492, he left Spain for his first voyage. He
     landed in San Salvador at Cap-Haitian and
       returned home to Palos, Spain, in 1493.
In 1493, he left Spain for his second voyage. He
    landed on Marie-Gallant, then went again in
     Cap-Haitian, St. Ann's Bay, and returned to
                Cadiz, Spain, in 1496.
  In 1498, he left Spain for his third voyage. He
 landed in Santo Domingo, and returned home
            again to Cadiz, Spain in 1500.
    In 1502, he left Spain for his fourth and final
    voyage. He landed on the Bay Islands off of
 Central America, Portobelo, and then returned
     home to Sanlucar, Spain, for the final time.
                He later died in 1506.
Columbus opened a shop that sold maps and books
for sailors. There he became a map maker and began
reading books. He read a book written by Marco Polo.
Columbus was fascinated by Polo's book. After reading
this book Columbus was sure he could reach the
Indies by traveling west. He wanted to go to the Indies
to get jewels and spices.
