Many countries in the New World and elsewhere celebrate the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas, which occurred on October 12, 1492 in the Julian calendar and October 21, 1492 in the modern Gregorian calendar, as an official holiday. The day is celebrated as Columbus Day …in the United States, as DÃa de la Raza (Day of the Race) in many countries in Latin America, as DÃa de las Culturas (Day of the Cultures) in Costa Rica, as Discovery Day in The Bahamas, as DÃa de la Hispanidad (Spanish Day) and National Day in Spain, and as DÃa de la Resistencia IndÃgena (Day of Indigenous Resistance) in Venezuela. These holidays have been celebrated unofficially since the late 18th century, and officially in various countries since the early 20th century. . Columbus Day became an official state holiday in Colorado in 1905. It became a federal holiday in 1970. People have ritually remembered Columbus beginning at least in the Colonial period. In 1792, New York City and other eastern U.S. cities celebrated the 300th anniversary of his landing in the New World. In 1892, President Benjamin Harrison called upon the people of the United States to celebrate Columbus Day on the 400th anniversary of the event. During the 400 year anniversary in 1892, teachers, preachers, poets and politicians used Columbus Day rituals to teach ideals of patriotism. These patriotic rituals were framed around themes such as support for war, citizenship boundaries, the importance of obedience to the nation, and celebrating social change as progress. . Catholic immigration in the mid-nineteenth century induced discrimination from anti-immigrant activists such as the Ku Klux Klan. Like many other struggling immigrant communities, Catholics developed organizations to fight discrimination and provide insurance for the struggling immigrants. The organization, the Knights of Columbus, chose Columbus as the masthead to symbolize their rights to citizenship: one of their own, a fellow Catholic, had discovered America. . Some Italian-Americans observe Columbus Day as a celebration of their heritage, the first occasion being in New York City on October 12, 1866. Columbus Day was first popularized as a holiday in the United States through the lobbying of Angelo Noce, a first generation Italian, in Denver. The first official non-centennial Columbus Day was decreed by Colorado governor Jesse F. McDonald in 1905 and made state law in 1907 . . Since 1971, the holiday has been commemorated in the U.S. on the second Monday in October, the same day as Thanksgiving in neighboring Canada. It is generally observed today by banks, the bond market, the U.S. Postal Service and other federal agencies, most state government offices, and some school districts; however, most businesses and stock exchanges remain open.

October 12, 1492 We have spotted land! I have named it San Salvador. I believe that Japan is only a short distance to the west. [Editor's note: Columbus landed in the Bahamas south of Florida. He believed that he was on islands off the coast of Japan.] There are strange looking people here, very… different from my men and me. They wear little clothing and are of a different color. Our giant ships with enormous white sails amaze them. These Indians are not what I expected, and there are no cities of gold like Marco Polo described. [Editor's note: Columbus had actually met members of the Taino tribe, but he believed he was in the Indies. This is why he called them Indians.] I spotted several of them wearing GOLD! They tell me that islands to the north and south are where the gold will be found, so I ordered my men to set sail for the gold! ( Full Answer )

Columbus's initial 1492 voyage came at a critical time of growing national imperialism and economic competition between developing nation states seeking wealth from the establishment of trade routes and colonies. In this sociopolitical climate, Columbus's far-fetched scheme won the attention of Isab…ella I of Castle. Severely underestimating the circumference of the Earth, he estimated that a westward route from Iberia to the Indies would be shorter than the overland trade route through Arabia. If true, this would allow Spain entry into the lucrative spice trade - heretofore commanded by the Arabs and Italians. Following his plotted course, he instead landed within the Bahamas Archipelago at a locale he named San Salvador . Mistaking the lands he encountered for the East Indies, he referred to the inhabitants as "indios". ( Full Answer )

His voyage really didn't change the world of Europe, but it did change the world of the Native Americans. The landing on Hispaniola brought together the New world and the old world and because of that it will never be the same for Native Americans. With the Europeans came disease, foreign plants and… insects, entire environments changed, slavery, and death. Columbus was just the first of the people who were to follow him into the America's. In truth, his return to Spain was not much and very few people knew about his landing on Hispaniola. The Spanish crown was also not impressed with him since he didn't bring back the gold, spices, silks, and gems he expected to find. Columbus was pretty much a failure. ( Full Answer )

I collect these clocks. The value depends on the condition, and the variation of the clock. If the clock is in fair condition the value would be about $100. Excellent condition with the acorn weights and time weight would be about $150 to $200. If it has the advertising plate or has an original ship…ping create, someone may be willing to offer $300 at auction. . the "Columbus Clock" was manufactured starting in about 1892 by "The Bostwick and Burgess Mfg. Co.", located in Norwalk, Ohio. They made between 10,000 and 20,000 of the clocks and they were sold at the Chicago Columbian Exposition in 1893, which was the first Worlds Fair. It is believed that they originally sold for $5.oo. By the end of the fair it is reported that they were selling for $1.oo each. . Darrell ( Full Answer )
