Christopher Columbus radio drama on Cavalcade of America.   Orson Welles is the star of this Old Time Radio show titled Admiral Of The Ocean Sea with Orson Welles.

Columbus: a poem by Joaquin Miller

Christopher Columbus from M.B. Synge’s book   The Discovery of New Worlds

Christopher Columbus from the book American History Stories by Mara Pratt

Christopher Columbus is shown landing in the West Indies, on an island that the natives called Guanahani and he named San Salvador, on October 12, 1492. He raises the royal banner, claiming the land for his Spanish patrons, and stands bareheaded, with his hat at his feet, in honor of the sacredness of the event. The captains of the Niña and Pinta follow, carrying the banner of Ferdinand and Isabella. The crew displays a range of emotions, some searching for gold in the sand. Natives watch from behind a tree. John Vanderlyn (1775-1852) had studied with Gilbert Stuart and was the first American painter to be trained in Paris, where he worked on this canvas for ten years with the help of assistants.
