October 2nd is NOT Columbus Day!
What you need to know:
So Christopher Columbus gets his own day every year because in 1492 he sailed the ocean blue and crashed into Haiti and told everyone it was India. Pretty impressive stuff, but we’re not going to talk about him. Instead, we’re going to talk about some of the other grouchy European explorers who made their mark in the New World. We’ll cover the adventures of Henry Hudson, Hernando Cortes and his improbable conquest of Mexico, and learn exactly what John Smith did (besides Pocahontas).
