Bibliography at bottom of description AUTHOR'S NOTE: This video is meant to give a non-bias account of the events which unfolded when Columbus and his crew made contact with the people of the Caribbean. Of course, I was not able to fit everything into the video; I had to omit details, such as the fact that the Taino were not the only people that Columbus encountered (there were also the Ciguayo tribe and Carib cannibals). A second particular is that not all fault should lie directly on Columbus' shoulders. His crew of 1,200 for the second journey consisted partly of convicts and landless nobles, the worst type of people with which to build a settlement. Another fact is that Columbus grew up in societies (Genoa, then Portugal) that kept domestic slaves. I have no political agenda for making this video. I am a student of history and I have tried to give an account of Columbus' journeys that is as close as we can possibly get to the truth. I will I admit that I am not a fan of Columbus. I think he was cruel, even for his time. We cannot judge a 15th-century human from a 21st-century perspective; but even for the 15th century, he was an awful arbiter. Sources: Bergreen, Laurence.

History books traditionally depict the pre-Columbus Americas as a pristine wilderness where small native villages lived in harmony with nature. But scientific evidence tells a very different story: When Columbus stepped ashore in 1492, millions of people were already living there. America wasn't exactly a New World, but a very old one whose inhabitants had built a vast infrastructure of cities, orchards, canals and causeways. The English brought honeybees to the Americas for honey, but the bees pollinated orchards along the East Coast. Thanks to the feral honeybees, many of the plants the Europeans brought, like apples and peaches, proliferated. Some 12,000 years ago, North American mammoths, ancient horses, and other large mammals vanished. The first horses in America since the Pleistocene era arrived with Columbus in 1493. Settlers in the Americas told of rivers that had more fish than water. The South American potato helped spark a population explosion in Europe. In 1491, the Americas had few domesticated animals, and used the llama as their beast of burden. In 1491, more people lived in the Americas than in Europe. The first conquistadors were sailors and adventurers. In 1492, the Americas were not a pristine wilderness but a crowded and managed landscape. The now barren Chaco Canyon was once covered with vegetation. Along with crops like wheat, weeds like dandelion were brought to America by Europeans. It’s believed that the domestication of the turkey began in pre-Columbian Mexico, and did not exist in Europe in 1491. By 1500, European settlers and their plants and animals had altered much of the Americas’ landscape. While beans, potatoes, and maize from the Americas became major crops in continental Europe.

But was he an intrepid explorer who brought two worlds together or a ruthless exploiter who brought colonialism and slavery? And did he even discover America at all? Alex Gendler puts Columbus on the stand in History vs. Christopher Columbus. Lesson by Alex Gendler, animation by Brett Underhill.

Most are taught in school that Christopher Columbus discovered America... But did he really discover it? Was he the first European in the Americas? The answer to both those questions is "no." So what was going on in Americas before 1492? Who really discovered America? Well, many people before him. Western Europeans simply hadn’t heard from the rest of the world yet, or just believed what they wanted to believe...

Monday, October 12th is Columbus Day, which we have celebrated in this country since the eighteenth century… and that’s probably long enough. When you find out the actual facts of what Columbus did when he got to America, you’ll find one of the darkest chapters in American history. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola (Think Tank), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. "Second, Columbus wasn't a hero. When he set foot on that sandy beach in the Bahamas on October 12, 1492, Columbus discovered that the islands were inhabited by friendly, peaceful people called the Lucayans, Taínos and Arawaks. Writing in his diary, Columbus said they were a handsome, smart and kind people. He noted that the gentle Arawaks were remarkable for their hospitality. "They offered to share with anyone and when you ask for something, they never say no," he said. The Arawaks had no weapons; their society had neither criminals, prisons nor prisoners. They were so kind-hearted that Columbus noted in his diary that on the day the Santa Maria was shipwrecked, the Arawaks labored for hours to save his crew and cargo. The native people were so honest that not one thing was missing. Columbus was so impressed with the hard work of these gentle islanders, that he immediately seized their land for Spain and enslaved them to work in his brutal gold mines. Within only two years, 125,000 (half of the population) of the original natives on the island were dead.”* Read more here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eric-kasum/columbus-day-a-bad-idea_b_742708.html ********** The Young Turks October 6, 2015 Hour 1 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 The REAL History Of Christopher Columbus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FBUEfdPDOQ&index=1&list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 Eric Bolling Against Gun Background Checks Because Poor Can't Afford Them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4PBw5nMjsI&index=2&list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 Media Fails To Point Out Benghazi Smear Campaign Because Neutrality https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AO_dUDDRZsw&index=3&list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 Dr. Ben Carson Preaching On Guns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEV2EBpjHnA&index=4&list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 ********** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

olasz-amerikai kalandfilmsorozat, magyar szinkron, 1985 - 4. rész - 5. rész - 6. rész Az 1985-ben készült sorozat a világtörténelem egyik legjelentősebb felfedezőjének, Kolumbusz Kristófnak életútját állítja a középpontba. Egészen a kezdeti gondolattól és tervektől, miszerint nyugatra is el lehet jutni Indiába. Megismerhetjük a felfedező korai életét, utazását az akkor végtelennek tűnő Atlanti-Óceánon és az Újvilágban töltött éveket és felfedezéseket. Valamint a kor európai nagy hatalmainak felfogását és az ősi amerikai indián civilizációk életét, majd kifosztását. Végül a genovai olasz felfedező életének alkonyát, mely korán sem olyan dicsőségben végződött a spanyol királyi udvarnál, mint az érdemei kívánták volna. Szereplők: Gabriel Byrne (Kolombusz), Faye Dunaway (Izabella királynő), Rossano Brazzi (Diogo Ortiz de Villegas), Virna Lisi (Dona Moniz Perestrello), Oliver Reed (Martin Alonso Pinzón), Eli Wallach (Hernando de Talavera), Max von Sydow (Portugáliai János), Nicol Williamson (Aragóniai Ferdinánd)

Contrary to popular belief, not only did Columbus realize the world was round, so did his contemporaries. In fact, it was so well accepted that daring seafarers had been exploring the Atlantic for hundreds of years before Columbus’ time. Without a doubt, men of the early Renaissance knew the world was round, and that the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria were in no danger of sailing over the edge.

Hello friends, I´m Cristobal Colon, the world famous sailor and adventurer. I am so famous because I discovered America, but the truth is, it was all possible thanks to Isabel and Fernando, the Spanish Catholic Kings, who invested money enabling me to carry out the trip. I, as well as all the other brave crew members who accompanied me, set sail in three different ships named; La Niña, La Pinta and Santa Maria, from the Port, Puerto de Palos, in Huelva, Spain. After 72 days of sailing, on the 12th of October 1492, a sailor named Rodrigo de Triana, yelled: Land Ahoy! And we disembarked and set foot on American soil, as quickly as we could... But I must confess something to you, in truth I believed that we had reached India, which was where we were heading to, it was complete accident that we arrived at this new continent…but hard work and sacrifice always gives you rewards. After the first trip, I returned to America another three times and I bought back to Spain unknown products in Europe such as tomatoes, corn, potatoes, and cacao. Mmm, yummy! I also bought from Spain to America food and animals which they hadn't even heard of such as horses, sheep, pigs, onions and wheat. Well this is my story friends, now you know why I, Admiral Cristobal Colon am so famous. But before I go I would like to give you some advise, if you want to be happy, work and study hard, with effort and determination one can accomplish many things…goodbye friends, Adios.

THE LETTER OF COLUMBUS ON THE DISCOVERY OF AMERICA - FULL AudioBook | GreatestAudioBooks - On the evening of 3 August 1492, Columbus departed from Palos de la Frontera with three ships: a larger carrack, the Santa María ex-Gallega ("Galician"), and two smaller caravels, the Pinta ("The Pint", "The Look", or "The Spotted One") and the Santa Clara, nicknamed the Niña ("Girl") after her owner Juan Niño of Moguer. The monarchs forced the citizens of Palos to contribute to the expedition. The Santa María was owned by Juan de la Cosa and captained by Columbus. The Pinta and the Niña were piloted by the Pinzón brothers (Martín Alonso and Vicente Yáñez). Columbus first sailed to the Canary Islands, which belonged to Castile. He restocked provisions and made repairs in Gran Canaria, then departed from San Sebastián de La Gomera on 6 September, for what turned out to be a five-week voyage across the ocean. At about 2:00 in the morning of 12 October, a lookout on the Pinta, Rodrigo de Triana (also known as Juan Rodríguez Bermeo), spotted land, and immediately alerted the rest of the crew with a shout. Thereupon, the captain of the Pinta, Martín Alonso Pinzón, verified the discovery and alerted Columbus by firing a lombard. Columbus later maintained that he himself had already seen a light on the land a few hours earlier, thereby claiming for himself the lifetime pension promised by Ferdinand and Isabella to the first person to sight land. Columbus called the island (in what is now The Bahamas) San Salvador; the natives called it Guanahani. Exactly which island in the Bahamas this corresponds to is unresolved. Based on primary accounts and on what one would expect from the geographic positions of the islands given Columbus's course, the prime candidates are San Salvador Island (so named in 1925 on the theory that it was Columbus's San Salvador), Samana Cay, and Plana Cays. The indigenous people he encountered, the Lucayan, Taíno, or Arawak, were peaceful and friendly. Noting their gold ear ornaments, Columbus took some of the Arawaks prisoner and insisted that they guide him to the source of the gold. From the entry in his journal of 12 October 1492, in which he wrote of them: "Many of the men I have seen have scars on their bodies, and when I made signs to them to find out how this happened, they indicated that people from other nearby islands come to San Salvador to capture them; they defend themselves the best they can. I believe that people from the mainland come here to take them as slaves. They ought to make good and skilled servants, for they repeat very quickly whatever we say to them. I think they can very easily be made Christians, for they seem to have no religion. If it pleases our Lord, I will take six of them to Your Highnesses when I depart, in order that they may learn our language." Columbus remarked that their lack of modern weaponry and metal-forged swords or pikes was a tactical vulnerability, writing, "I could conquer the whole of them with 50 men, and govern them as I pleased." On 13 January 1493, Columbus made his last stop of this voyage in the New World, in the Bay of Rincón at the eastern end of the Samaná Peninsula in northeast Hispaniola. There he encountered the warlike Cigüayos, the only natives who offered violent resistance during his first voyage to the Americas. The Cigüayos refused to trade. Columbus kidnapped about 10 to 25 natives and took them back with him (only seven or eight of the natives arrived in Spain alive). After spending more than a week in Portugal, and paying his respects to Eleanor of Viseu, Columbus again set sail for Spain. Ferdinand Magellan was a young boy and a ward of Eleanor's court; it is likely he saw Columbus during this visit. After departing, and after reportedly being saved from assassins by King John, Columbus crossed the bar of Saltes and entered the harbor of Palos de la Frontera on 15 March 1493. Word of his finding new lands rapidly spread throughout Europe.

A centuries old anchor, believed to have been from Christopher Columbus’ ships, was discovered
Views: 6519 Fox News
Created by Matt Rubel twitter: @m_a_rubel; youtube.com/mattrubel; vimeo.com/mattrubel For more information on this subject, please consult: A People's History of the United States, by Howard Zinn In 1492, Columbus sailed the Ocean blue. And what he did next was more than a little shocking. Sure, we all know by now that he didn't really discover the Americas. The Chinese had likely already landed there, the Vikings definitely had, and obviously, there were already people who had been living there for a very long time. We also know that Columbus' discovery was actually a failure to circumnavigate the world in order to find an alternative trade route to Asia, for Spain to exploit at the peril of, well, mostly Italian city-states like his native Genoa. But, that's besides the point. Columbus' voyages unified the old world with the new in a lasting way. And that legacy is pretty difficult to fully fathom. Aside from the negative consequences like the transatlantic slave trade, the global expansion of colonialism, and the ensuing destruction of Incan, Aztec and Mayan cultures—just to name a few—Europe's late medieval discovery of the America's eventually lead to the global export of American crops like corn, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes; the spread of western ideas about religion, philosophy, science, and mathematics; and the founding of dozens of immigrant-rich, multicultural countries, including the United State, the land of the free sample, and home of the Atlanta Braves. So-- Isn't that enough? When Columbus and his men landed on the shores of the Bahama islands, the Arawak men and women who ran out to greet them brought food water and other gifts. Columbus was amazed by their hospitality and belief in sharing. His immediate response was, according to his own journals, to take several of the natives by force in order to interrogate them for information about where the gold they wore as jewelry came from. He had persuaded the Spanish king and queen to finance his expedition and they were expecting a large return of gold and spices. They had promised Columbus in exchange 10 percent of the profits, governorship over any new found land and a new title: Admiral of the Ocean Sea. The Arawaks imprisoned on Columbus' ship lead him to Hispaniola, the Island now shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic. From there, he returned to Madrid to tell the monarchs a series of lies. He told them he had reached Asia, and promised that in exchange for a little help from his Majesties, he would be able to send them as much gold and slaves as they needed on his next voyage. He also brought them several dozen enslaved Arawaks, thus beginning the trans-Atlantic slave trade. For his next voyage, because of his extravagant promises, he was given 17 ships and more than 1200 men. Despite the man power, he couldn't find any gold. So, he had 1600 Arawaks rounded up in a single slave raid. He had 500 of them chained and sent to Spain. 200 of those died en route. And that was too many deaths for Columbus, because it made the venture unprofitable. So, Columbus turned his focus back to gold. He relocated to an area he believed rich in gold and demanded that each native over 14 years of age pay him a tribute of a particular amount of gold every 3 months. Those who failed to round up the specified amount had their hands chopped off and bled to death. In reality, the natives had been given an impossible task. The only gold around were modest dust fleck deposits in the rivers. So, they fled, were hunted down by dogs, and killed. Arawaks who tried to put up a resistance were easy killed by the superior weapons of the Spaniards. When Columbus took captives, he hanged them or burned them to death. He and his men also, of course, raped the local women en mass. The Arawaks began to suicide and kill babies to save them from the Spaniards. In two years, half of the original inhabitants were dead. The population continued to decline rapidly for decades, until there was not a single Arawak left. According to the first-hand accounts of Bartolome de las Casas, over three million people died from Columbus' reign of terror. Columbus is without any exaggeration, a treasonous, lying, genocidal, rapist slave-trader. And yet, we celebrate him. Millions of Americans will be observing Columbus day on Monday, as we in the North celebrate our Thanksgiving...

Christopher Columbus (c. 1451 to May 20, 1506) was an Italian explorer and navigator. In 1492, he sailed across the Atlantic from Spain in the Santa Maria, with the Pinta and the Niña ships alongside, hoping to find a new route to India. Between 1492 and 1504, he made a total of four voyages to the Caribbean and South America and has been credited for opening up the Americas to European colonization.

I just realized i didn't talk about how he called Native Americans Indians, oh well. MUSIC USED: None (Until Outro) Godzilla 1954 main theme music Credits: Me Thanks for watching. If anyone can get the right number of how many times i said "Christopher" or "Columbus" you may get pinned and subbed. Also if you hear me stutter, thats because i'm retarded and its like midnight and i didn't edit it out.
