This proposal implies that the difficulties Magellan went through are the reason why he should be considered as a hero. On the other word, if Magellan had had good ship and well-trained sailor, he would not be considered as a hero, or if he had not finished the voyage, he also would be considered as a hero.

Although Magellan’s characteristic plays a critical role in his voyage, it is one of the many factors that led to the success of this globe-trip.

There is no argument that his “discovery” was a turning point in history, however many argue that his accomplishments have been oversimplified and glorified. Michael Berliner wrote an article where he addresses that Columbus Day should be celebrated and Columbus deserves to be honored. While Berliner makes an intriguing argument for the continuous celebration of Columbus Day, he drops the ball with acknowledging the individualism of the Native Americans and all the eradication caused.

When Berliner addresses the issue if Columbus really did discover the Americas, he is very hostile with his answer.

The myth that Columbus discovered a new world has led to Columbus Day promoting an inaccurate telling of the United States ' history. Additionally, Celebration of Columbus Day deflects from the unfair and cruel humanitarian treatment of the Indigenous people during that period of history. If instead of celebrating Columbus Day, we celebrated the culture and diversity of Indigenous people with the recognition of Indigenous People Day, it would honor the resilience of the original Indigenous natives against European pilgrims. In fact, historians have heavily documented that Christopher Columbus never made it to where he intended to go. When Columbus initially set sail, he meant to chart a western sea route to Chain, India and the islands of Asia.
