|"In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue."|
I learned that little rhyme in grade school, as we studied about the famous explorer Christopher Columbus.
October 8, 2007 is designated as a US federal holiday - Columbus Day. Some cities go all-out, with parades to commemorate the first European to enter the Caribbean Sea.
For many it's the last day off from work before the busy Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday season.
I thought it might be fun to review some of the facts about Columbus and his voyages to the New World.
Most of the info can be verified at this site: www.britannica.com/eb/article-9109621/Christopher-Columbus
Let me know what you think about the quiz. Hope you enjoy it.
