      Final Voyage After convincing King Ferdinand that one more voyage would bring the abundant riches promised, Columbus went on what would be his last voyage intraveling along the eastern coast of Central America in an unsuccessful search for a route to the Indian Ocean. When Ozzie continues to ask challenging questions, Binder slaps him on the face, accidentally bloodying Ozzie's nose. By listening to the record for a few years and later having Neil listen along, he is given continuing proof of the Patimkins' success at assimilation. Third Expedition On his third expedition, inColumbus was forced to transport convicts as colonists, because of the bad reports on conditions in Hispaniola and because the novelty of the New World was wearing off. He sailed across the mouth of the Orinoco River in present Venezuela and realized that he saw a continent, but without further exploration he hurried back to Hispaniola to administer his colony. The First Voyage At the end of the 15th century, it was nearly impossible to reach Asia from Europe by land.

      Convinced his exploration had reached Asia, he set sail for home with the two remaining ships. Numerous books about Columbus appeared in the s, and the insights of archaeologists and anthropologists began to complement those of sailors and historians. The more recent perspective, however, has concentrated on the destructive side of the European conquest, emphasizing, for example, the disastrous impact of the slave trade and the ravages of imported disease on the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean region and the American continents. After surviving a shipwreck off Cape Saint Vincent at the southwestern point of Portugal inhe based himself in Lisbontogether with his brother Bartholomew. Engaged as a sugar buyer in the Portuguese islands off Africa the Azores, Cape Verde, and Madeira by a Genoese mercantile firm, he met pilots and navigators who believed in the existence of islands farther west. A Last Crusade must take back the Holy Land from the Muslimsand that when Christ comes, he will come back in the place he lived and died: Jerusalem.
