Five Hundred and Nineth Anniversary of Columbus' Landing on the Island of Trinidad

Today is the anniversary of Christopher Columbus' landing on the island of Trinidad. Columbus landed on the island of Trinidad on his third voyage (船旅). Below is a map showing the route Columbus took on his third voyage.

Columbus' voyages had a huge impact on world history. Following Columbus' voyages many European people migrated ( 移住) to North America. Unfortunately, the meeting of European and indigenous (先住民) North Americans caused the extinction (民族の滅亡) of many cultures and languages too.

A map of Trinidad is below.
