Personal journals of Christopher Columbus reveal how cruel he was.
He was not amicable with the Indians. Columbus took them for slaves and forced them to work in his
mines. He has had no mercy to nobody, no matter of the gender and age. Historical chronicles claim
for above 125 000 killed Indians. Chronicles also reported for suicides of above 100 Indians, which
couldn’t stand on his tortures. His subordinates tested the sharpness on their swords cutting the feet
of the children.
If some of the slaves tried to escape, Columbus let trained dog loose after and tear the slave alive.
Christopher Columbus is the first slave dealer in the history. He said: “A hundred castellanoes are as
easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and it is very general and there are plenty of dealers who
go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten are now in demand.”
