In 1492, Christopher Columbus set sail across the Atlantic Ocean in search of the Indies. He had spent much time trying to convince King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain to pay for the ships that would have him bringing them all of the finest riches in India. This would be a difficult journey because Columbus would have to sail west to reach the Indies in the east. The King and Queen finally agreed and gave Columbus three ships, the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. After a difficult voyage, Columbus and his three ships landed. Believing he had landed in India he named the native people there Indians. Columbus actually landed on an island south of North America, known as San Salvador. This “mistake” in which he discovered the Americas opened the doors to future European exploration.
Juan Ponce de Leon Ponce de Leon sailed for Spain He went looking for the Fountain of Youth He was the first European to land on the peninsula of Florida Ponce de Leon explored the area that later became St. Augustine, the first Spanish settlement in the New World
Jacques Cartier Cartier sailed for France. He was looking for the Northwest passage to the Indies. He explored the St. Lawrence River in Canada, near what later became Quebec.

Newport sailed with colonists and supplies on three ships: the Susan Constant, the Godspeed, and the Discovery. They landed in the New World in 1607 and named the new settlement Jamestown, after King James of England. Jamestown was the first successful English settlement. It is located on the James River in what is now Virginia.
