Letter Christopher Columbus
1,462 wordsThe letter Christopher Columbus wrote back to Spain to report his findings in the New World sparked intrigued me and sparked my imagination. Why I have been so absorbed in this letter I can not explain. This letter is supposed to be about describing an unknown land, a land that has not been seen by anyone besides the natives, but it seems that there is more to it than that. Columbus is known in elementary schools as the man who found the New World, and is regarded as a hero. To the contrary, his...

Greed Of Columbus
615 wordsDoes the progress of humanity ignited by Columbus justify the cost of the lives of the Native Americans No... human progress is not justified by the cost of Native American lives. The Native Americans died due to the greed of Columbus. By killing the Native Americans, Columbus did not aid the progress of humans. This can be seen by the way Columbus took credit for discovering land first, then ordering his men to kill the Arawaks of the Bahamas (like the Native Americans of America) when they ref...

730 wordsWhen Christopher Columbus landed in the Bahamas in 1492, this started a series of great comparisons and contrasts between this explorer and others. Columbus saw himself as a divinely religious person sent by God not to discover a new world, but to "be the messenger of a new heaven and a new earth" and that God would show him where to find it. His numerous religious observances and constant reminders to others that he was a "Christ-bearer" could make one conclude that this mystic is more of a med...
Praises For The Discovery Of America
274 wordsIn 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Once Columbus got to his destination he killed, raped, and enslaved natives. I think Columbus is a villain because he was a cruel, self centered man who does not deserve the praises for the discovery of America. First, he raped, killed, and enslaved the natives of the places he sailed to. Columbus over saw the killing of some Indians and ordered the enslavement of others. Columbus him self raped an Indian after " Beating her with a piece of rope". Also, he...

This essay will touch upon the wonderfully pervers...
