Meh, Colombus wasn't really involved in the Spanish conquest. He accidentally landed in the New World, yes, but then Spain cut him out of the deal. He died in poverty, still insisting that he'd found a new route to India, when everyone knew that wasn't true.

I get that it's supposedly earth-shattering news that Colombus Day is nothing much to celebrate, but a guy accidentally landing in Florida is nothing to abhor, either. Horrible stuff happened afterward, as it always does when two very different cultures collide, but history will always be re-interpreting those events. / end rant

His conquistador outfit is adorable!
