Today is Columbus Day

 For the 'historically challenged' this day is only another holiday, another time to get off work or get out of school.

Indeed, not much is taught about Christopher Columbus anymore.

You probably know that he is credited with the discovery in 1492 of the hemisphere in which America is located.

You probably also have heard the quote "in 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue"

You might even remember that his 3 ships were the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria (pictured here)

But that is probably about all most people know.

So, today, we are providing a link that will help fill in some of the gaps of Columbus day and Christopher Columbus.
