According to History 101 (2nd Ed.) by J. Peterson, Christopher Columbus was an Italian who was exiled to France, where he was hired by the French king to try to find another way to Russia to avoid the Swedish blockade that was preventing importation of vodka. He set sail with a newbie crew he found hanging out in the harbor because his budget wasn’t big enough to hire experienced sailors.

His navigator, one Louis Chevrolet, told him that his plan was incorrect because Columbus’s proposed voyage would lead to Japan, not Russia. Columbus decided to sail with his original plan anyway and had his navigator put in the brig, where he instead worked on plans for a horseless vehicle.

Eventually, the ship arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where there was a war happening between the Cherokee and Portuguese pirates over the right to collect tolls on the land bridge to New Brunswick, which was called Shelbyland in those days. Columbus, on thinking that he had reached Russia, attempted to start peace negotiations by offering a bottle of Tullamore Dew, hoping to gain control of the land bridge himself, but he did not realize that they were all Muslims and were grievously offended by the gesture. Columbus spent the rest of his days in a prison cell in Boston where he was made to write “Alcohol is a sin” over and over on the backs of old tax returns.
