Sourdough BS: Early Visitors to North America (100* d) RE: BS: Early Visitors to North America 01 Sep 01

I hada chance to spend an afternoon with Admiral Samuel Eliot Morrison, the outstanding historian and author of Columbus, Admiral of the Ocean Sea. When I see Columbus brushed off as a minor figure by people who know him only as a carboard cutout, I remember Morrison's admiration for the seamanship of Columbus. Morrison spent several years following the voyages of Columbus using his logs for guidance. Columbus' shortcoming regarding social justice are well known but what isn't appreciated, Morrison believed, was his personal courage and his seamanship.
