A.C.E Columbus Legacy

Christopher Columbus has many different stories and opinions about what he did but in my opinion and what I have read he is mostly a villain than a hero. He killed millions of innocent Indians women and children with no reason at all and all he wanted was gold and glory he had no pitty for the Indians and didn't realise that horrible thing that he was doing, the only thing he did was discover America and show to Europe and create a colony. 

In the article "People's history of the United States" by Howard Zinn, he talks about all the awful things that he did to Americans and what he forced them to do. Howard doesn't talk about one single thing that he did good and I agree with him, Columbus was a savage and a murderer. Although he was a great navigator and adventurer. 

Columbus has been very stereotyped and hated. People should read more about him before judging and saying he was good and beneficial for humanity.

Last question DBQ

10: In my opinion that statements is kind of true because all the things that they had to face where very harsh and the europeans stereotyped them a lot.
In documents 1 and 2 the illustrations were somewhat of exageretions of how Native Americans lived and how they were physically (very ugly), plus how they dressed (very badly and almost without clothes), and thankfully the author defend Native Americans and wrote the truth.
also Europeans brought different kinds of deseases that killed millions of people but also brought new things that helped native people on many things, europeans disacovered tobacco and other important stuff. The world should read and be aware of what really happened and stop stereotyping civilizations.
