The Inspiration of Christopher Columbus by Jose Maria Obregon. 

In part 3 of our series on Christopher Columbus, the Genoese explorer sets out for the New World on his second voyage.

This time, he has 17 ships and 1,200 men. Columbus will reach many new areas of the Caribbean, including Dominica, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, before returning to fortress of La Navidad – which he had established on his first voyage.

However, he will soon find that governing a colony is far more difficult than he ever imagined.

Below is a map of Columbus’ second voyage.
