Finally tell us which of all the early American Explorers was the most important and why.
Hello, My name is Christopher Columbus! I am an Italian navigator, explorer, and colonist!
On August 3, 1492 I left a Spanish port with my three ships the Nina, Pinta, and the Santa
Maria, in search of a passage to Asia in hope of obtaining gold, spices, and pearls! I took 4
separate trips and landed on multiple Caribbean islands (now known as the Bahamas), as well
as the island called Hispaniola. Many people think that I was the one who first found North
America, but it was already inhabited by Native Americans. My exploration was important
because it set way for migration to America!
I think Christopher Columbus is the most important explorer because his expedition is
misunderstood and there are a lot of false facts about him! He never actually landed in North
America; he tortured native people and even took some back to Spain. The reason he is tied
to the discovery of America is because of the mass migration from Europe after his voyages
took place! He sailed to Spain, and the Spanish were the first to explore and settle in America
with the French and English to follow!
Making the World “Safe for Democracy” and Self-Determination?
Woodrow Wilson argued that the United States entered WWI in order to make the world
“safe for democracy.” In his Fourteen-Points Speech , Wilson argued that countries should
be able to practice self-determination and that colonies should have a say, equal to that of
colonizers, in determining what happens in that colony.
Were Wilson’s arguments about democracy and self-determination put into practice inside and
outside of the United States during/after World War I?Using the required sources, provide at
