Columbus on Trial

The Indictment:
You are charged with the mistreatment and murder of thousands, perhaps millions, of indigenous people.

Has the discovery of America been beneficial or harmful to the human race?

Was Columbus the only to blame?

Be able to argue both guilty and not guilty and accuse one other person(s) for the crimes. 

Assignment: 
Sift through the sources below to collect evidence that can be organized in support of one side or the other. Write a case brief for each possible verdict. Work in pairs to complete the work. Confer on the facts for both sides before committing to a final brief.
