I also learned about the Columbian Transfer - what the Old and the New World got from each other. They gave Europe chocolate, coffee, tomatoes, maize, avocados, etc. The Old World gave the New World horses and smallpox, wiping out at least 80% of them. I think the Old World came out ahead on that one.
