In part 5 of our series on Christopher Columbus, the Admiral heads back to the New World. This time, he goes in search of lands that were rumored to be south of his previous discoveries. Columbus would survive the tropical doldrums and a tidal wave while becoming the first Europeans to reach the continent of South America.
After his excursions around South America, Columbus would return to Hispaniola to find the island in open revolt against him and his brothers.
Below is the route of Columbus’ third voyage to the New World.
