In response to a multitude of requests in emails and on social media, ICTMN’s Vincent Schilling has created and posted his latest video on his YouTube channel entitled Horrible, True Facts about #Columbus and #ColumbusDay.

The video is based on Schilling’s original article on Columbus, which he wrote in October of 2013. The video, entitled “8 Myths and Atrocities About Christopher Columbus and Columbus Day” -, has received well over 125,000 likes and shares on Facebook as well as national attention.

“A ton of people asked me to make a video, so I did,” said Schilling. “But I didn't expect it to be so difficult. As I was creating this video and spoke aloud the atrocities of Columbus and his men, I broke down a few times and had to stop during both the filming and editing process.

“This is a horrible history. I wish this had not been so glossed over, and that Columbus was not portrayed as heroic in schools all over the U.S.”
