It seems to be common knowledge on the internet that Columbus was involved in the slave trade.

I just saw this on Facebook and thought I would try to find how true the quote is to what we know Columbus wrote.

  • The Columbus'es wiki page has wealth of information with citations. tl;dr; Yes. He was a slaver and big tyrant. – Euphoric Oct 11 '16 at 14:12

    Welcome to Skeptics, Mark! The claim from Facebook already has a question about it, so I closed it as a duplicate. The question in the title isn't quite the same, but @Euphoric's comment probably covers that. – Oddthinking Oct 11 '16 at 14:57
