Actually, some Newsie Historians claim that Columbus (or Christopher C-word-I-forgot-how-to-spell (but it's scottish)), is actually either a scot that was working for the spanish, or an englishman that was a spy for the english government, and was trying to find a route to india for the english, irrcSince today is Columbus Day, how is Columbus viewed by the RU? On one hand, brought Christianity
and genocideto the natives, but on the other he was a papist Italian.
Maybe they’ll claim that he was actually English, since much of his early life is a mystery to us. Hell, they could even do the same with some other conquistadors. “Hernán Cortes? I think you mean Patriot-Saint Herman Carter, patron of New Canaan!”
