Christopher Columbus Day Quotes
About Christopher Columbus Day.
Columbus Day (Christopher Columbus Day) is a U.S. holiday portrayed as the discoverer of the New World on October 12, 1492. This holiday is a bit controversial because the European settlement in the Americas led to the termination of the history and culture of the indigenous peoples. It was unofficially celebrated in a number of cities and states as early as the 18th century but did not become a federal holiday until 1937.
