Original Columbus Wrong Way Corrigan Christopher Columbus was "the wrong way Corrigan" of the 15th Century. . _ Columbus sailed for the-Orient in m ~de"his historic''landtag" on' Oct te wrong direction because ne 12 H92 He thouRht he was .. some . reality, the westward trip to Asia from Europe in the days before the Panama Canal, was about 24,000 miies around Cape Horn and then northwest through southern Pacific waters. En route to what he believed to be the Orient, Columbus literally "bumped into" an island in the Bahamas, off of Florida, where he the was unaware that North and South America and the Pacific Ocean lay beyond the western shores of tho Atlantic. In estimating- the distance from Spain, westward across the Atlantic to Asia, he visualized a single, unbroken expanse of water. This made him think the Portuguese •seamen of his day were foolish for trying to get to the Orient by going south around Africa and then east, a distance of more than 12,000 miles. If Columbus' calculations had been correct, he would have reached Japan after sailing westward from Spain for less than 5,000' miles. In where on a small island near Japan or China." The great navigat- ^ or and seaman did not realize that he had discovered "the new world' until nearly six years later. DAIRYING BEGINS First U. S. cows were brought to Jamestown colony in 1611.
