It is on this day we re-visit the enduring lessons of his courage and leadership. Columbus of course has always held a proud place in our history. He was a dreamer, a man of vision and courage, a man filled with hope for the future… Put it all together and you might say that Columbus was the inventor of the American dream. In the next few years Columbus’ voyage will take on a heightened significance... The year 1992 will mark the 500th anniversary of his sailing. Three years ago, I appointed: The Christopher Columbus Quincentenary Jubilee Commission to recommend ways for the nation to mark this milestone… educational programs to enhance the knowledge of history, foreign language and international affairs among our young people. -President Ronald Reagan Columbus Day 1988 - audio transcription.
