Where did Christopher Columbus first land on in the US?
With the idea of discovering a new sea route to the Indies, Columbus set sail. Once landing on San Salvador, he made contact with the inhabitants and named them Indies. It is believed believed by many historians that Columbus made set anchor in the New World on the island of San Salvador, on the 12th of October, 1492. Today, some historians are not sure that the first landing was on San Salvador. Regardless, it was in that area that Columbus claimed the "New World" for Spain. In reality Columbus set foot on Puerto Rico, which is a part of the United States, on November 19, 1493, naming it San Juan Bautista after Saint John the Baptist.
Columbus wasn't the explorer who "found" America. The Native Americans were. They used a land bridge made from glaciers. Columbus was thinking he was in India (the spice land).
I think christopher colombus was the first person to land in the us first
christopher columbus Biggest challange was traveling around the US.
He never landed on the US mainland, no. He did, however, land in Puerto Rico, which is a US territory.
== == Christopher Columbus
christopher Columbus :)
The Vikings (Scandinavian people who pillaged villages and roamed the seas in the 1300s to the 1500s) probably landed on what is now the United States long before Christopher Columbus landed in North America.
Christopher Columbus lived long before the United States was established. He arrived in the Bahamas in 1492. The US was established in 1776.
As far as we know, the Native Indians were the first people to ever live in America. If anyone sailed to America before, we may never know. But as far as facts and history tells us, yes, Christopher Columbus was the first person (or European) to ever sail to the Americas.
the US & Clolumbus do not co-exist....
Relatively very little is known about the early settlers compared to the Europeans who colonized the area after the first voyage of the navigator Christopher Columbus in 1492 for his home country of Spain. Columbus' men were also the first documented Old Worlders to land in the territory of the United States when they arrived in Puerto Rico during their second voyage in the year 1493.
Slavery started when Christopher Columbus first came to the Americas. He claimed the land his and enslaved all Native Americans. When Native Americans started to die from the small pox disease, because Christoper Columbus and his crew, they decided to enslaved African Americans and, brought them to the Americas to work because most of them where immune to the disease.
The Italian explorer Christopher Columbus discovered the US in 1492. Of course, it wasn't called the USA then. Also, there were already people living there.
Typically, all credit is given to Christopher Columbus, but this claim is a common misconceptions. In reality, the first to discover the Americas were the Vikings who preceded Columbus by about 500 years.
Yes. Christopher Columbus did found the U.S.A in 1492 Columbus never set foot on continental North America. He discovered the New World by landing on islands in the Caribbean.
it was christopher columbus
Christopher Columbus discovered the US in 1607. fromthere the king of England decided that he wanted more land so then came James town and then the gold miners went to the west which is how western US was settled.
COLOMBIA in South America
good ole' Christopher Columbus, I do believe.
christopher Columbus did but it was named after Amerigo Vespucci
Columbus brought the Spanish to the New World. Then came the Dutch. French, and English.
Although they both play important roles in history, Christopher Columbus is more important because he "found" the land that George Washington was born and lived in. He also changed the way in which the world was viewed in his lifetime. As far as the history of the US, George Washington is much more directly famous.
Their is many theories and evidence proving Columbus wasn't the first person to land in the new world from the old world and so we reject Columbus day as a federal holiday.
he thought he was going to India on his rout on the sea but he went to Wat's now known as the USA. Were he traveled and found people living in the US that were the Indians Christopher named them indies.
The people who he called Indiens.
The United States was found in 1492, by Christopher Columbus.
They were brought over by Christopher Columbus on his second trip.
cuz he was soo inteligent and prayed for us
He never came to the US. At that point the US didn't exist. It was 1492. What Columbus did do was, he discovered Cuba. Hispaniola, and San Salvador. He didn't even make it to Mexico.
Christopher Columbus and his parteners in 1879 when he did his first expedision even though he was aiming for Asia and he found the river because he almost died there
Leif Ericson was a Norse explorer who is regarded as the first European to land in North America. He landed here 500 years before Columbus.
No, Christopher Columbus was the one who was given credit for discovering America. The Vikings discovered America long before Columbus. His travels started the permanent contact between Europe and the Americas. He never landed on the North American continent.
DUHHH! they started everything! because we (Navajo and other Indians) started out in America first before Christopher Columbus came. We learned how to grow things and started villages. But when Christopher Columbus came, he needed help so we taught him all that we knew then he took over and made us become slaves and used us. So basically we started out America.
Christopher Columbus is generally credited with discovering America, of which the US is a part. The US did not exist when Columbus made his voyages of discovery, so he could not discover it. Further, he never landed on any territory that later became part of the US
After the natives that traveled to American soil and the plates moved dividing the land, they were already living there, they were obviously the first. However, afterwards. The vikings were the first to discover America. They would rape and slaughter the native villages for mere entertainment. They would get bored of it and leave, but they knew it was there and there had been proof that they had been there long before Christopher Columbus.
No, Christopher Columbus is not alive. Christopher Columbus died May 20, 1506 from a heart attack in Valladolid, Spain. He was 54 years of age, which actually was a common age to die at in the 1500's, so he actually died a long life even though it seems he died short to us.
HE didnt help us at all, he didnt even find America he founded Hispanola
What did christopher Columbus promise to the king and queen of Spain in return for the grant needed for his expodition?
That he would claim new land he found as he sailed trying to find a water route to Asia and he mistakenly landed upon US and claimed more land for England.Does this make sense to you?
They had always known where it was.
Answer No. Actually the Mayflower sailed about two centuries later.
how yall suppose to be the website to give us the answer but yall asking us
From various indications the US was discovered around 1492. This is when Christopher Columbus arrived in the US but this is not definite and has always been a matter of debate.
Christopher Columbus landed in the Bahamas in 1492. He never landed on the mainland of North America. He visited South America in 1498, and Central America in 1502, after which he was stranded for nearly a year on the island of Jamaica in 1503.
Christopher Columbus commanded three ships for his journey to discovering America. These ships were Santa Maria, Nina and Pinta. Among the three, Santa Maria was the biggest and slowest.
No he did not, He reached the Bahamas and that's it, he died befor he could reach America
he led the explroreation of north and south america on accident
well... Columbus sailed from Spain, to the place called San Salvador(El salvador) it is about 5261.96 miles long.../.
