Discovery of Hispaniola
This day in History
Today is a holiday in Haiti and everything is closed!
Christopher Columbus discovered Hispaniola ( the Island). Now, my point is good for him but when he came to the Island there where "Indians" living there already so actually people knew about the Island as a matter of fact he thought he was in Asia and called the inhabitants of the Island Indians. Please do some more research on the story to see what happened next and it was not pretty.
One thing it taught him and the rest of the world was that the earth was larger than they actually thought it was.
