Answer . \nDuring WWII, Americans were trying to do whatever they could to help out the army. Women took the jobs that men left behind when they went off to Europe to fight.

"Chris columbus" never even knew about North America, or so says research done during America's Bicentennial. Letters from Columbus' land were studied, and it was determined that he was probably named 'Cristobal Colon' or Cristofero Columbo' (the Columbo name was well-known and wealthy and he might …have been a child of an unmarried man, which wouldn't have been popular to the church at the time). Columbus took four voyages. On his fourth voyage he stepped on Venezuela, which is SOUTH America. He never stepped on North America. Someone once wrote to him saying, "There are rumors that there is a big island north of where you are." and he replied, "If there were, I certainly would know about it!" So, he said out of his own mouth that he didn't know about America. He actually 'discovered' a tiny little island that was 13 miles North-to-South and 9 Miles East-to-West although nobody can exactly pin down what island it was. --- Of course the first people to 'discover' North America were those who traveled across the land bridge back about 18,000 years ago. --- But, if you're talking about the first European... Lief Erikson in the year 1000. --- However, if you're meaning 'America'... "One of Bristol's major merchants, a local politician and aristocrat, was directly involved in this saga for twenty years." His name was Richard ap Meurig (of ap Merick, Ameryk, Amerike), and probably discovered America between 1480 and 1500. His name was close to 'America' and some say that is who named it. Others say, "John Cabot (c 1450 - c 1498), an Italian-born British navigator who is said to have reached America in 1497." ( Full Answer )

From the Sagas we can reasonably conclude that Leif was trying to confirm the voyage of Bjarni Herjulfsson. Bjarni was from Iceland, sailing to Greenland (Leif was from Greenland) in 986AD when he was blown off course pass Greenland. . Bjarni had excellent navigation skills and once the skies clear…ed he knew that he was well east of Greenland but could see land and forest. Bjarni did notgo ashore, instead he returned to Iceland and told everybody about his trip. . Leif was the son of Erik the Red. The same guy that settled Greenland. Now you've gotta think Leif was under some pressure to live up to his Dad's reputation, well maybe not the murder part. So when he hears of Bjarni and his trip he buys Bjarni boat and retraces the voyage, discovering North America for the Vikings. . He also laid the groundwork for Christopher Columbus. Chris belonged to a group of navigators who, 500yrs later, used information about Leif's voyages to once again discover North America. . So why did Leif go? Some say he was just out for a day sail and got lost. I say he was trying to prove himself, likely to his Dad, or maybe he just thought it would be cool to see what was there. We will never know for sure. . ( Full Answer )

The distance between the westernmost European city (Sintra, Portugal) and the easternmost American city (Lubec, Maine) is 2971 miles or 4781 km. In contrast, if you crossed Eurasia and… the Pacific Ocean from Europe's easternmost point (Novaya Zemlya, Russia) to America's westernmost point (Cape Wrangell, Alaska), the distance would be 3293 miles or 5299 km. Therefore, you would travel east from North America to reach Europe. ( Full Answer )

Because unlike Toyota, they only offer 5 models to the public. In the 90's they did not offer the same products as in other countries. In other countries they offer a very nice 4 door pickup L200 and a minivan L300. They discontinued the Montero and never offered a 2-door montero that was available …all over the world. The Lancer was not the same Lancer offered around the world, and the Galant has been watered down for the American market. The dealers in the US are not the greatest either. ( Full Answer )

Devonshire cousins, Sir Richard Greynvile and Sir Walter Ralegh received Letters of Patent from Queen Elizabeth I, to Colonize the New World. In 1585, Greynvile, took seven ships loaded with colonists and provisions to establish a colony on Roanoke Island. Although the settlement survived, poor rela…tions with the natives and food shortages constantly plagued the colony. After Greynvile's supply ships were late in reaching Roanoke Island, due to weather, the colonists returned to England on board his great rival, Sir Francis Drake's, armed merchantmen, and in the process missed the arrival of Greynvile's re-supply ship. The ship's crew found the colony deserted and left fifteen men at the site to await their return. They never did, and eventually the men returned to England. Two years later, Grenville sent another colonial expedition of 150 men, led by artist John White. The third colony, choosing the same location their predecessors had abandoned, saw improved relations with natives and the 1587 birth of Virginia Dare, the first child born to English parents in the New World. Soon after Dare's birth, White returned to London to secure more provisions for his fledgling colony, only to return three years later to find the colony abandoned, with no trace of inhabitants and most structures destroyed. The vanished settlement is often referred to as the "Lost Colony," a story retold each summer on Roanoke Island in Paul Green's outdoor drama. Although the first English colonies were unsuccessful, the attempts brought attention to the dangers inherent in creating a new society in a foreign world, and laid a course for future colonists.

During the 1600s and 1700s, wars ravaged Germany. Marching armies trampled down fields of grain, stole cattle, and burned down farmsteads. In their wake, famines spread over the land. Taxes, levied to pay for the war, added to the people's plight. Religious disputes also drove people to leave their… homes. In Europe the rulers chose what church they wanted in their lands. Many pious Germans of strong convictions found this hard to bear. North America, especially Pennsylvania, offered them religious freedom. ( Full Answer )
