Every year I teach my school aged children about Columbus
How he was not the one to discover America first, the Native Americans were here first. I tell them the truth, how Columbus apparently could not read a map, and decided to wipe out a lot of natives when he landed.
I do not give credit where credit is not due, and Columbus was not the first to discover the Americas.

There are a lot of historical innacuracies regarding Columbus. He was not a very nice man...

My mom taught me the same thing. My first year of school, I argued with the teacher when she told us he did.
