Nearly 500 years since he "discovered" the New World— the culmination of decades of American discovery and colonization — Christopher Columbus appears to be celebrated with a federal holiday on the second Monday of each October. When scholars kept digging into Christopher Columbus ' career, a debate emerged about continuing to remember the Italian adventurer as a hero.
Like many European adventurers, during his journeys, Christopher Columbus met indigenous people. There are three main sources of controversy involving his relations with the indigenous people he called "Indians": the use of brutality and exploitation, the compulsory conversion of indigenous peoples to Catholicism, and the implementation of a host of new illnesses that would have drastic long-term effects on indigenous peoples in the Americas.
In an age in which the foreign slave trade began to grow, Columbus and his people captured and subjected to extreme violence and brutality many indigenous West Indies inhabitants. During his successful first voyage in 1492, after an arduous three-month journey, Columbus arrived on an unidentified Caribbean island.
He requested six of the colonists to be captured on his first day in the New World, stating in his newspaper that he knew they would be good servants. During his New World years, Columbus implemented forced labor practices in which native people were put to work for gain. Columbus later delivered thousands of friendly Taino "Indians" from Hispaniola Island to Spain for purchase, most perished along the road.
Besides the debate of enslavement and brutal law, the "Revolution of Discovery" that Columbus helped guide had the unintended effect of bringing new pathogens into the New World that would devastate most New World islands and societies ' native populations over time.
Historians have used the term "Colombian trade" in the broader sense to define the transfer of crops, animals, and commodities between East and West that inspired his journeys. Although the results were common and not all detrimental, Columbus ' opponents believed that the worst elements of this trade contributed to biological warfare. Finally, Columbus caught up with his practices and acts. Some colonists protested at the Spanish court for him, charging Columbus of mismanagement.
In 1500, the king and queen dispatched Columbus and his brothers to a royal director who had them shipped home. Although Columbus restored his independence and took a fourth and final journey to the New World, he lost his governorship and much of his reputation. The historical record has cast in a shadow of confusion the reputation of Columbus. Protests at the Columbus Day parades, efforts to eliminate him from the curricula of the school and demands to alter the federal holiday ensued. Beginning in 1991, dozens of cities and a few states embraced Indigenous Peoples ' Day, a festival that honors Native Americans ' heritage and contributions — rather than Columbus.

The first big bill introduced by the Democrats when they took over the House of Representatives this year was one that would make Election Day a federal holiday and encourage private employers to give employees a day off. Needless to say, the idea was rejected by Republicans who made a fetish out of the suppression of the voters Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called the bill.
But the idea makes a lot of sense. And this week, we're coming up with a perfect example of how this could happen.
October 14 is a federal holiday, just one that you probably forgot about: Columbus Day. The holiday was established eighty-five years ago to honor the contributions of Italian-Americans. The destructive effect of Columbus ' arrival on native Americans, along with questions about his own character, has made the holiday a critical target for decades.
So what if we exchanged Columbus Day for Election Day as a national holiday? Moving from one official holiday to another means that federal workers will not be given an extra day off (calling on the Republican worker-focused parsimony).
What this would mean is that workers would have a better chance of being able to cast a ballot. There is no federal law requiring employers to give workers time to vote, although some states do.
The turnout in the U.S. was appallingly low. It was 56% in the 2016 election. The most common reason not to vote cited by people in the polls is to be too busy or not to be able to get time off from work. Some of that might be a rationalization of the-dog-ate-my-homework variety but for many workers, it is no doubt true.
As a civics course, having more people to vote would be a good thing. It's anathema, as a subject in Republican politics.
