Why/how does Christopher Columbus get all this credit for discovering lands that were already inhabited? maryluvs_huhh.gif

I guess I never thought about it until I saw the repercussions up close and personal but the Spanish, Dutch, etc., did nothing but run around the world stealing shit and wreak havoc. I'm so annoyed with their asses about this. maryluvs_mad.gif

That always annoyed me too -Christopher Columbus didn't even set foot in America. The closest he got was Cuba

I need to read up on this subject. As I stated in the 2012 Thread, I am soooo intrigued with the Mayans now. When I was in Puerto Rico two years ago, there was a book at the Fort about the History of the Carribbean: From Columbus to Castro that I thought about getting but didn't. Now I wish I did. I need to know more about this subject.
