Columbus Day by Charles Hervey Townshend

'Columbus Day' throws light on the real origin of the name 'America'. Published in 1893, the paper was authored by Captain Charles H. Townshend (1833–1904), an American merchant ship officer. He boldly states: "The whole world has been led into the error that America was named for Vesputius, a Florentine map-maker, who enlightened Europe on the discoveries of Columbus."
