Even though Columbus did help them progress further than they were going to get, what is the point if because of his actions all the natives died and can not progress for another thousand years anyways.

He sacrificed his pathway to reach to his loved one for his kingdom, just like any army man leaves his family for his country, that is heroism. It taught us the value of loyalty and the importance of our responsibilities.
