The Effects of Columbus’s Expedition

Posted by on September 14, 2012

Right now I am going to tell you about Christopher Columbus’s expedition and the positive effects of it and also the negative effects of it.

The first positive effect of Christopher Columbus’s expedition is that if he had never even thought of going on the expedition, America would not be here today. The second positive effect of Christopher Columbus’s expedition is that he got new kinds of food that they had never had before like corn, potatoes, cocoa, and beans.The last positive effect of Christopher Columbus’s expedition is that he became well known throughout American history. He even has a holiday made because he sailed on his expedition and found America. The first negative effect of Christopher Columbus’s expedition is that they totally destroyed the way of life for the Taino. The second negative effect of Christopher Columbus’s expedition is that he exchanged diseases for vegetables. It sounds unfair but that was how life back then. The last negative effect of Christopher Columbus’s expedition is that many Native American’s died because they had no cure for smallpox and measles. Christopher Columbus is an interesting person to study because he benefited all of American History.

    Good information; however you may want to rethink your sentences. Instead of saying, “I hope you enjoy…” say something like Columbus is an interesting person to study.” You should not use “I” in a formal research paper.
    Good effort!
