Christopher Columbus “Discovers” America
Vintage illustration from “A Child’s Book of Mankind Through the Ages” By E Joseph Dreany 1950’s

Eureka!

The mythology that Christopher Columbus “discovered” America and the “Indians” that we all learned in school,  is as antiquated as this vintage children’s book illustration from the 1950’s.

Looking for a new way to celebrate Columbus Day? Follow this old joke: Walk into someones house and tell them you live there now.
