Happy Columbus Day

On Behalf of | Oct 11, 2021 | Firm News

Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the historic voyage and landing of Christopher Columbus in the New World on October 12, 1492. It’s a federal holiday that is celebrated on the second Monday in October. Before it became a legal federal holiday in 1971, many states celebrated Columbus Day on October 12. The anniversary of his landing in the New World was first formally celebrated in 1792. When Columbus arrived in the New World on October 12, 1492, he arrived on a small island in the Bahamas; without accurate world maps at the time he believed that he had reached his intended destination of Asia.

Although he was not the first European to discover the Americas his journey sparked enthusiasm for European exploration of the hemisphere.
