Columbus set out on his voyage with his three ships the Nina, Pinta, and the Santa Maria in 1492. Thinking the earth was much smaller than it actually was, he planned his trip to be about 3000 nautical miles instead of the 10,600 nautical miles.

It is invigorating to reflect on how we went from not knowing when our next meal would be, to the memory of my mother opening the door to our first home, and my older brother graduating from medical school.

16 September 2012 Relationships between American Indians and European Colonists During the race for land in the 1600s, Europeans quickly moved onto American property, but usually, American Indians occupied that land. At first Europeans would sometimes become allies with the Indians as an aid to survive, but when the Europeans gained enough support and became more land-hungry, they would kick the Indians out of the property.
