Shred Station CT - October Newsletter
The leaves have started to fall, the weather is getting colder, and October is here! Do you remember the poem that began like this?
In fourteen hundred ninety-two,
Columbus sailed the ocean blue…
Last week we celebrated Columbus Day. Here are some interesting facts that you may not have thought about since grade school:
- Columbus discovered America in 1492. He originally set sail on August 3, 1492, but had trouble with the ships, stopping at the Canary Islands for a month.
- He travelled with 3 ships: the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.
- While Columbus was an Italian, he could not find funding in Italy, so he turned to the King of Spain who ultimately provided the the funding he needed.
- Columbus did not land on the U.S. mainland. He landed on an island in the Caribbean. While many believe he landed on San Salvador, there is still debate on which island he originally landed.
And we can’t forget about the other holiday we celebrate at the end of October…
