Details

The site of Columbus's first landfall in the New World has been a controversial subject since his landing there in 1492. Watling Island, renamed San Salvador, has been the choice of many scholars, but a new theory presented by Luis and Ethel Marden who tracked the journey presented on this map points to Samana Cay. Published in National Geographic Magazine in November 1986 with the "Threading the Islands" map and three articles on Columbus, the "Where Did Columbus Discover America?" map presents a new answer to this centuries-old question.

• A map detailing Columbus's track as charted by Luis and Ethel Marden
• An article about the search for the place of Columbus's landing
• An explanation of the nautical symbols used
• An illustration of the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria sailing off to the New World
