How did Europeans feel about Columbus's first voyages to america?

Were they happy because they found new land or?

  • Geography(Eighth Grade) -

    I doubt if Columbus's voyages made much difference to the vast majority of Europeans. They believed he was looking for a faster way to eastern Asia in order to find spices and other riches. He didn't.

    What does your book say?

    they felt unhappy, Columbus would tell them to look for gold and if they didn't find any then hell cut their hand or fingers off
