A 06 October 2007 photo shows the statue of Christopher Columbus at Columbus Circle in front of Union Station in Washington, DC. The statue was dedicated to Columbus 08 June 1912. Every year since 1934, people in the United States have celebrated the day in October 1492 when Christopher Columbus “discovered” America. “The celebration has taken on a life of its own to the point that 36 years ago, Columbus Day became a legal public holiday,” Salvatore Zizza, president of the National Italian-American Foundation, said.
