Christopher Columbus Christopher Columbus spend is life expanding horizons and getting more human knowledge He had an urge to uncover the ocean secrets His obsession on finding Asia Japan China and India He led the way into the future and discovered a New World He had a great impact in Europe and the rest of the world But when Christopher Columbus died in 1506 no one really noticed because he had no celebrity Since Columbus wasnt that popular in his own lifetime no one bothered to paint a portrait of him interview him or ask for his autograph That is why many artists have guessed how Columbus looks like There are some traces of his life though Like a ships log kept on the first voyage and a biography by his son that are full of exaggerations Historians are trying to write biographies of him They are also having theories on what kind of man he was -a scholar a religious man a political consultant or a criminal Like the theories the historians are also deciding if Columbus was a hero a lucky bumbler or a greedy businessman The next three paragraphs are about whether Columbus was a hero a lucky bumbler or a greedy businessman to try and find out what Columbus was really likeChristopher Columbus was born in 1451 in the port city of Genoa He was the son of a weaver He could have easily learned his fathers trade and spent the rest of his life at home making cloth of cotton and wool Instead his determination of learning about the world made him spend his life on the ocean exploring From age fifteen to twenty five he got on a merchant ship and started taking dangerous journeys down Africas coast Columbus probably started this desire of exploring by watching the sea gazing at the horizon and wondering what lay beyond Or maybe he heard tales about the Viking and lands
