1492: An Ongoing Voyage


An exhibit by the Library of Congress supplies diverse facts on the famous 1492 voyage. The exhibition first examines the encounter between the European explorers and the native people. They explore five geographical areas: The Caribbean Island Societies, the Middle American Cultures, the Andes, Life in the Highlands, the South Atlantic Peoples, and the Diverse Societies of North America. The changing order of the Mediterranean World gives a new perspective to the discovery of America. The entry for Christopher Columbus, too, gives a different slant on the Man and the Myth. The entire site is fortified with pictures and descriptions of artifacts from the time. All in all, the Library of Congress presents multiple routes for discussions on Columbus Day.
