Columbus’s exploration of the New World ended lives and heritage of many people. The Discovery of the New world was later on followed by series of minor developments in navigation, geography, astronomy and economy through the Atlantic circuit but in contrast it even these minor devalopments were ”Not..worth price of human lives.”(Sale 188). Additionally Europeans imposed and substituted their institutions, ideas,languages, cultures, technologies and economy for the New World’s original heritage and language. Also” it gave birth to the most infamous and the most atrocious of all traffics, that of slave, the most execrable of crimes against nature (Reynal /190)”. Ships of African slaves crossed the Atlantic to the Americas to work on European sugar and tobacco plantations under the harshest conditions, which led to an end of many slaves’ lives.
Although among non-Native Americans Christopher Columbus is traditionally considered the discoverer of America, Columbus was preceded by the various cultures and civilizations of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, as well as the Western world's Vikings at L'Anse aux Meadows. He is regarded more accurately as the person who brought the Americas into the forefront of Western attention. "Columbus's claim to fame isn't that he got there first," explains historian Martin Dugard, "it's that he stayed. " The popular idea that he was first person to envision a rounded earth is false. The rounded shape of the earth has already been known since antiquity.
In the United States, Christopher Columbus is known for sailing the ocean blue in 1492 and thus discovering the Americas and leading the way for other Europeans to follow. He is the great intellectual that first thought of the world as being round instead of flat and was courageous enough to prove it. All this and much more, but, in reality Columbus was just another simple explorer out of Europe, trying to make some money by finding a new route to India. The man is painted as a hero and is given a national holiday even though he is responsible for the murder and enslavement of many Native Americans. In truth, a lot of what we know about Columbus is untrustworthy; some of it may be correct but a lot of it is just lies.
Little is known about Black Hawks childhood except that he was born a great grandfather of a principal chief of the Sauk (nanamaka aka “Thunder”). Black Hawk showed great promise as a teenager, and as a military leader which would eventually lead to him being considered the only great Indian leader to come out of Illinois.

“Columbus is responsible for the murder of millions of indigenous people,” says osia.org. The people who wrote this website assert that, if Columbus had never discovered the Americas, Native Americans and African Americans would never have been harmed.

Christopher Columbus “sailed the ocean blue” in 1492. He is given so much credit for not being the first persons who settled on American land, actually Native Americans (the Arawaks) were already living there. Although Columbus came about American land which he called “The Indies”, he was set out on his voyage to find Asia, Columbus did not expect to find the Americas, not to mention how welcoming and generous the Arawaks were- he clearly took advantage of them by leading to killing all Arawaks , allowing them to become nonexistent, he also is given credit because he “proved the world is round” actually, he was not the first person that proved this- therefore, Columbus was falsely given credit for finding the Americas, proving “the world is round,” and should not be considered a hero or have a holiday for his unexpected finding and cruel treatment to the
