Historical Confessions

Where history geeks share their secrets

I wish schools were more truthful when they taught about Christopher Columbus. People never understand my utter hatred of him or why I feel that he doesn’t deserve a holiday.

Mod note: We learned alllllll about that shit at my elementary school and never celebrated Columbus Day. The Columbus unit was how I found out what the word “rape” meant. :D
