Happy Christopher Columbus Day

 

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue.  I’m sure most of you are familiar with that phrase.  Did you know that 1492 was just the first of 4 voyages that Christopher Columbus made across the Atlantic Ocean.  Columbus was not in search of the Americas as he simply stumbled upon them while in search of a direct route to Asia. He didn’t ever find a direct route but he is credited with finding the Americas. 

 

When Columbus discovered the Americas, he found he was not the first as there were already people living there.  Columbus has been a bit controversial in recent years due to his behavior towards the natives.  His personal journal has comments about the natives making fine servants.  He even gifted 400 of them to Queen Isabella, who refused them. 

 

Monday we honor Columbus as the daring explorer that started the discovery of America as we know it today.
