Vespucci And Balboa

by abby

     Vespucci sailed in 1499. He was trying to find out if Coulumbus really found Asia. Instead of finding Asia he found South America. He looked for sighns that he was in Asia not knowing he was in America.

     Balboa settled in America. He started a farm on an island called Hispaniola. He was not good at farming, so to avoid paying money he got in a barrel that was on a boat and sailed away.
