“History Alive! Rodrigo’s Land: A Story About the First Man to Spot Land on Columbus’s Voyage”–Free presentation by Steven Farrington at the Sodus Point Village Hall. Cuba, April 1514. Fray Bartolome De Las Casas tries to forget the atrocities he has witnessed against the Taino Indians. However, his retreat is disturbed by a group of Dominican monks. They send him an old Spaniard, Rodrigo, to convince him to act. But who really is this Rodrigo? Is he indeed Rodrigo de Triana, the first to spot land on Columbus’s 1492 trip? Why had he been sent on that voyage, and why was he made an outlaw and a target of the Inquisition? And more importantly, does he have a connection to Bartolome’s past in Seville? Why does he seem so eerily familiar? For additional information, visit www.sodusbaylighthouse.org or call (315) 483-4936.
