Christopher Columbus


Christopher Columbus and Howard Zinn's account, what are some of the differences you noticed in the two narratives?  Was the information from Zinn's account new to you?  If the information was new to you, how does it affect your perception of Christopher Columbus?  Why do you think the textbook does not include the same information as Zinn's work?  In light of what you know about the "great discoverer," do you think that statues of Christopher Columbus should be removed?  If so, by whom?  Should the United States continue to celebrate Columbus Day every October 12th?  Why or why not?  What does the United States' recognition of Columbus Day suggest about the country's past and present?
