Christopher Columbus, his time and his plans

Season 10 Episode 1009 | 26m 46s

Columbus spent nearly a decade lobbying for his trip remaining mostly in Huelva, a port on Spain's southwestern coast. On his voyages, he brought the heritage of his surroundings and their many assumptions shaping his mission. The sailors he chose were critical to the success or failure of his mission. Understanding them helps clarify the influence and destruction they would heap on the Americas.
