Michael A. Santo, P.C., Attorney at Law, shares an important document on "How to Address Issues As to Columbus Statues & Monuments".

Santo not only discusses the purpose and origin of Columbus Day but also outlines the false narratives that must be understood and rejected. Santo's extensive footnote section equipped with links to news articles as well as reputable academic scholars and authors is a must-read as well.

Courage and Conviction

The True Story of Christopher Columbus

Produced by the Knights of Columbus and National Columbus Education Foundation

Courage and Conviction: The True Story of Christopher Columbus is a thorough examination of the life and legacy of the fearless discoverer of America. This film provides insight into Christopher Columbus' remarkable genius as a sea navigator as well as his deep desire to bring all nations to Christ. Through expert interviews and archival footage, we look at the origins of Columbus Day and the symbolic role that Columbus has for Catholic immigrants, especially Italian Americans. Finally, the film addresses the current indictments against Christopher Columbus with boldness and exposes the motive behind the attacks of revisionist historians. This film shows why Christopher Columbus remains not only a man worthy of admiration, but a noble icon of what it means to be a Catholic and an American.
