Christopher Columbus set sail from Cadiz with 4 ships on his fourth and final trip to the New World, supposedly looking for a passage to the Indian Ocean. The date itself isn’t nailed down since it was repted differently in different sources. Maybe he left on May 9 like El libro copiador says, maybe May 6 like the Historie says, or maybe May 11 like the Relación of Diego de Porras says. Who knows. If today is Tuesday, maybe I ate bacon for breakfast today, maybe I ate bacon for breakfast this past Saturday, or maybe I’ll eat bacon this coming Thursday. However you slice it, I’ll be eating bacon, and CC caught a boat for the New World.
