What they didn't *want* you to know about Christopher Columbus:

1) Columbus did not set people straight about the shape of the world. Navigators in his time all believed that the world was round.
2) Columbus was wrong about geography, not a lone rebel who was right. He thought that a trip to Japan was only 3,000 miles. In reality, it would be 12,000 miles even if a route existed.
3) Columbus was not a hero who is maligned only in modern times. His cruelty during 7 years ruling Hispaniola, including torture, mutilation, and slavery, led to the Spanish imprisoning him.
