Im pretty sure that Christopher Columbus first made landfall in Greenland.
He technically never landed in America. He hit the Bahamas and thought he was in IndiaAnswerArrived in 1492 AnswerArrived in 1492 Columbus's goal was to reach India, but he made a mistake and landed in the Bahamas. He arrived there in 1492. A silly way to remember it is "IN 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue" Columbus still thought he was in India and called the people that lived there Indians.
It was made in the year 1992, & is better known as the quincentennial dollar. Quin-5, Centennial-100, meaning Columbus made landfall 500 years before the dollar bill was made in honor of him

Supposedly 1492, but Vikings made it to the region now called Canada, so they arrived before Columbus. Then again, the American Indians arrived even earlier via the Bering Strait.
Europeans first arrived in Cuba when Christopher Columbus sailed south after making landfall in the Bahamas in 1492. The natives of the Bahamas told of wealthy people to the south on an island that they called Cuba, which makes Cuba special as a place still with its original name. Because Columbus had thought he had arrived in Asia, he made the assumption that Cuba was Japan. The first European settlement wasn't made in Cuba until 1511 by Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar, who founded a small town called Baracoa, which still survives to this day. Cuéllar also went on to establish the cities of Santiago de Cuba and Havana.

India, and when he got here he thought he had made it, and that is why a lot of people use the INCORRECT term of Indians instead of Native Americans. It is because Columbus thought they were Indians.
The camp was made to look like a train station. So when the trains "delivering" the Jews arrived, they believed they were safe.
