Blog Post # 6: Cristopher Columbus

Does Columbus deserve a National Holiday name for him?

I think Columbus should have a national holiday dedicated to him and his discovery. However, as Howard Zinn clearly states, Columbus was not the only explorer who made an important discovery, and they are not getting any credit. Some might argue that Cristopher Columbus should not be honored because he committed atrocious mistakes and killed thousands of people. Although this is true "Columbus was a flawed hero, like all men are flawed..." Warren H. Carroll. Even a hero can have flaws, and Columbus should not be criticized for making mistakes.

  1. I appreciate your position, but your evidence supports the opposing view. Seems your evidence should be pulled from the other article to support your thesis.
