Discovery of America
The causes to the Discovery of America, include an Italian Navigator, Christopher Columbus. The Italian Navigator had previously read Marco Polo's book, Wonders of the World. Columbus had shortly informed the King of Spain of a "shortcut" he knew of to the spice islands. The King and Queen of Spain took this claim into consideration & by supporting it they agreed to finance Columbus's voyages, as long as Christopher Columbus provided spice from the islands.
The effects to the Discovery of America is in 1492 when Christopher Columbus sailed for the spice islands. Christopher Columbus had taken the route West, instead of North, East or South. Columbus had the knowledge, from Marco Polo's book, that there was no islands in the direction of West. He landed in what he believed was in the (East) Indies, but what was actually the Bahamas. Columbus continued to explore the Caribbean, but to his knowledge was the Indies. At this time Christopher Columbus discovered new spices such as; sugar, which created a newing of Spice. The Italian Navigator, Christopher Columbus, died May 20, 1506 from heart failer. He never knew or acknowledged that he had discovered the New World or as we call it today, America.
