Sure. No nation was ever created without atrocity. Should we just not teach ANY history?? Wars are awful. conquering groups more often then not behaved horribly to those they believed beneath them. So of COURSE I will teach my children history....ALL of it. Not just the liberal.....lets hate everyone who didnt pee roses and rainbows....history that some are trying to regurgitate. I think its pretty crappy to judge people from cultures hundreds of years ago by todays standards.

To actually answer your question, I do teach my son about Christoper Columbus. I also teach him about Leif Ericson as well. For those you don't know, Leif Ericson, was the first European to step foot in North America, about 500 years before Columbus did.
