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.
