For most of us, the answer to that question is straightforward: Christopher Columbus. That's what we were taught in school and that is why we celebrate Columbus Day. Yet it is far from clear-cut. Quick forward 13,000 years. Around 1,000 AD, the Viking Eric the Red had taken after eras old marine defeats westbound and found Greenland. Naming the solidified no man's land "green" land, he planned to tempt and make Viking settlements, which he did. At the point when Eric the Red's child Leif Ericsson was mature enough to take order over settlements and voyages, he turned into a persuasive young man, particularly as the child of the man who found their new home nation or better known as the America’s.
