Watlings Island? This debate has been going on for more that 500 years. The truthis....nobody really knows were Columbus first stepped foot on theNew World. If you want a good guess, most historians have agreed onGuanahani Island which today is known as Watling Island in theBahama's. The reason for …the debate is that Christopher Columbuswas notorious for keeping inaccurate logs on distance throughoutthe first voyage. In fact, Columbus did this on purpose. Columbuswas a sailor who sailed by "Dead Reckoning" and he was an expert atit. As far as a mathematical sailor--- he was not. Columbus didkeep a detailed diary of every day activities. Through this diarylog, it can be determined that the physical description given byColumbus himself (and with his inaccurate but useful position logs)Watlings Island is the most PROBABLE landing site of ChristopherColumbus. To this day there have been search crews combing theBahamas for the wreckage of the Santa Maria which sank by accidenton Christmas, 1492. This would yield indisputable proof of thefirst landfall. Unfortunately, no such wreckage has ever beenfound. The first place Christopher Columbus landed was the CaribbeanIslands. His first attempt at settlement was on Hispaniola. ( Full Answer )

No, Christopher Columbus was not there at the first thanksgiving. The celebration was between the Native Americans and the Spainanrds for the celebration of their first harvesting!

Guanahani Island --- in the now Bahammas. Most historians have agreed on Guanahani Island which today is known as Watlings Island in the Bahammas.
Technically not. The first Europeans were probably the Vikings in the 10th century. Before them, Native Americans may have come to America from other places rather then evolving there in ancient times. He was just a famous specific European who was one of the first people to go there. The topic can …be debated for hours though. Oh, and Sir Columbus did find land, but he found Central America. And he thought he was in India so he called the native Americans Indians. And that's how the got their name. ( Full Answer )

No. Christopher Columbus neither Spanish, nor did he ever reach the shores of North America proper. He was Italian, or more properly Genoan, and his explorations were limited to certain Carribean islands and some parts of the east coast of Central America.
No. He NEVER landed in NORTH AMERICA ! He landed on an island called Hispaniola that he thought was India.
The first island discovered by Christopher Columbus was the Bahamas, which he called El Salvador or San Salvador. ;DDDDDDD
