Italian explorer even deserves credit for discovering the New World. Some say Scandinavian explorer Leif Erikson was first to discover North America; he set up colonies in Greenland and Newfoundland four centuries before Columbus. Italian cartographer Amerigo Vespucci was credited with proving Columbus’ discovery of the West Indies was not Asia. Vespucci’s claim to fame was documented when a world map published in 1507 had a new continent named America after his first name.Nevertheless, Columbus deserves credit for persistence. It took him seven years to get someone to finance his voyage to find a Western sea route to China, India and Asia’s Spice Islands. As American statesman Arthur Goldberg said, “If Columbus had an advisory committee, he would probably still be at the dock.” He finally talked King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain into outfitting him with supplies, men and three ships: the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria. He set sail in August 1492 equipped with a mariner’s compass, an astrolabe, a quadrant and a 2nd century A.D. map, but he unfortunately left the iPad with map apps on the kitchen table.On Oct. 10, some prankster shouted “Land ho!” That didn’t go over well with Columbus, who sensed the sailors were talking mutiny, murmuring things like “remind me never to sign on again with Dora the Explorer.” He convinced them to sail for three more days and got lucky on Oct. 12 when sailor Rodrigo de Triana shouted “Land ho!” from the deck of the Pinta. “Here we go again,” thought Columbus, but a Bahamian Island actually was on the horizon. Columbus believed he’d reached the coast of Asia and quickly took credit for finding a “New World.” It is rumored an annoyed de Triana jumped ship to set up an off-shore account in the Bahamas.The only holidays generally accepted as paid days off are Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July Fourth and Labor Day. In addition to holiday pay, Thanksgiving, Chr...

Freeman’s Oath” in 1639, was, centuries later, rescued from an old barn in Windsor. The famous Bay Psalm Book, known as the first book printed in the colonies, was printed on it in 1640, and it has been asserted that the first Indian Bible was printed on the press sometime after that.Legend had it that the press had been built in England by Stephen Daye to satisfy a debt to Rev. Jose Glover for passage to the Massachusetts Bay Colony for Daye and his family. When Daye arrived with the press in 1638 he assembled the components in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for the first printing press in the colonies. With this storied lineage the famous press made its way to Vermont where it was used to publish the first official documents of the republic and 14th state. Eventually it was employed to print Vermont’s first newspaper and then retired to gather dust, debris and cobwebs in Preston Merrifield’s Windsor barn.It is a wonderful story except that it is not true. It took over 300 years, but eventually a one-time librarian at Montpelier’s Kellogg-Hubbard Library discovered the truth.How the legend evolved is just as interesting. Charles S.
