1. Christopher Columbus did not discover America. You can’t “discover” a place where people are already living! We need a new phrase like “When Columbus arrived in America” or “When Columbus came to America”. Sorry, but this is a pet peeve.

    1. I have always wondered the same thing, besides Leif Erikson arrived much earlier…about 500 years earlier. And there was possibly others.

    2. They never say much about Prince Murdoch who came to the shores of what would become Mobile Alabama in the year 1170-way before Columbus

  2. Interesting. It is not unheard of for a Native American to be sent on his journey on a “raised bed”.

  3. Thanks for sharing this little known story.
