“bien Dicho”

Bien dicho y bien escrito! Well said and well written!

What a refreshing change to read real history as it relates to the Spanish presence in North America. All the more refreshing after the recent orgy of Orwellian pseudo-history that the politically correct attempted to force-feed us during the Columbian quin-centennial. Sadly, it seems the Black Legend is still a potent political tool.

As an aside, it should also be mentioned that Spanish money, in part, helped finance the American Revolution. A reserve of two million pieces of eight, so-called Spanish dollars, was given to the patriot cause to back the Continental currency.
