Columbus Had Co-Pilots

Columbus couldn't have mistakenly landed on the wrong continent without the help of his co-pilots.

Two descendants of the brothers Martin and Vicente Pinzon say it is about time the pilots of the Nina and the Pinta -two of the three ships that were part of Columbus' expedition - got equal recognition with Columbus. So why not celebrate Pinzon Day?

"I'd like to get the name recognized," Bob Pinzon, 54, a descendant of the navigators, said Monday. "I think Columbus got too much credit." [Link]
Revelers gathered in Denver on Monday to give Columbus all the credit.
