“The continent, from a European standpoint, was discovered by Columbus in 1492. Motivations are difficult to evaluate, but Columbus and his crew did not come to America for the public interest, to create a republic, nor even as employees of his patrons, Ferdinand and Isabella, who might have had such goals. They came for profit.”
