Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer who discovered North America with his 3 ships the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria; crossed the Atlantic ocean in a 3 month voyage to find a faster route to Asia by going east rather than west. Instead of finding a faster route to Asia, Christopher Columbus landed on what is now part of the Caribbean islands chain (The Bahamas).
