Stupid History 12 May 2010

Christopher Columbus didn't "discover" America because he never actually set foot on the American mainland. When Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492, he landed on Watlings Island in the Bahamas. In his three subsequent excursions across the Atlantic, his landings were all in South American and the Caribbean.



Normally I don't editorialize on these, but -- well, the main reason why Columbus didn't "discover" America is because THERE WERE ALREADY PEOPLE HERE.....
