We must find another way to India. We need the cinnamon, nutmeg, saffron, and pepper that India has. This is why your journey is important to the Kingdom of Spain. Queen Isabella We must find another way to India. We need a sea route. We ask you, Christopher Columbus and your brave sailors to cross the ocean blue in this year, 1492. This is why your voyage is so important to us. August 3, 1492 – Columbus Speaks to his Crew You have boarded the Santa Maria. We are searching for a new route to India. Your privilege to be here is a great one. You will be helping to open new routes for trade. You have been chosen because your knowledge of traveling across the seas is legendary. Your family will be safe and sound on the Mother Land. You will see them in 30 days, as I have promised. Now, please take a wedge of lime and place it in your mouth to prevent the onset of scurvy. Food will be rationed, for we have limited supplies.
