Forside 1492 "They would cut an Indian's hands and leave them dangling by a shred of skin ... [and] they would test their swords and their manly strength on captured Indians and place bets on the slicing off of heads or cutting of bodies in half with one blow. ... [One] cruel captain traveled over many leagues, capturing all the Indians he could find. Since the Indians would not tell him who their new lord was, he cut off the hands of some and threw others to the dogs, and thus they were torn to pieces." Date 1590s. Included in later editions of Brevísima relación de la destrucción de las Indias, 1552 by Bartolomé de las Casas. Engraving by Theodor de Bry (1528–1598),Southern Netherlandish engraver, draughtsman, editor and publisher. Public Domain.
