In 1497, John Cabot, explorer and navigator, set sail from England, under the aegis of King Henry VII, in search of a shorter route to Asia. He landed somewhere on the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, and planted the English flag, thus marking the beginning of English expansion overseas. This sketch depicts Cabot and his sons on board a ship.
