In 1477, a young Columbus made a voyage to the Arctic seas and then wrote notes telling us exactly where he had gone to. These well known notes have become "Mystery Notes" for no one in 500 years has been able to interpret them. Here for the first time is the expert interpretation, word for word of the Columbus "Mystery Notes." In short Columbus visited in 1477 a land that would later be called America! Please read the story, for it is truly breathtaking.
After a comprehensive examination of nautical tables, tide charts, various historical records, as well as notes by Columbus, Gilbert Aleman, a.k.a. Al Mann, a certified Master Mariner, concludes that Christopher Columbus made a voyage to Greenland and America in 1477. For many years, most scholars have believed that the so-called "Mystery Notes" written by Columbus in 1477 referred to a journey to Iceland. Aleman's line-by-line interpretation of the notes disputes that conventional wisdom.
