“The man we think of,
the man we admire,
the man we talk about,
the man whose wonderful story we read and re-read,
is Christopher Columbus,
the greatest human benefactor of the human race.”
Those are the words of Rossiter Johnson. He published a book in 1897 about the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. That world’s fair was a celebration of the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ discovery of America, at least that’s how it was promoted.
