Ship


In OTL, Columbus discovered the Americas in 1492. several other explorers followed, as well as colonists, diplomats and others. What if the Americas had not been discovered until later...

Point Of Divergence

The POD is, instead of Columbus discovering the West Indies, he got blown off course. his crew became rather insubordinate after staying at sea longer than in OTL, and he was forced to turn back to spain.

Other explorers faced different setbacks. John Cabot's expedition was sunk by icebergs. Magellan's ships were sunk in the strait to be named after him in OTL.

The discovery was delayed for only a few years, but a shift in power led to some serious differences.
