Christopher Columbus sadly was very harsh and cruel to the native Americans. It did not seem fair he could just take the Land when it was the Native Americans. Columbus and his men killed over 125,000 native Americans. They killed them with weapons and claimed the land as their own.

Christopher Columbus died in 1506 and he still believed he had discovered a shorter route to Asia.
