Who was the first person to discover America?
I am trying to find out who REALLY discovered America. My friend told me (I was pretty surprised) that Christopher Columbus actually wasn't the first person to discover America. He also said that if you think about it the Native Americans were here before he was even born. I just would like some (or all) clarification for this information. If anyone can, could you please give me the most information you can, I need the information by January 25. Anyone can answer my question, not just professionals. But I would like real fact based information. If you can could the people answering my question also include the websites/books/shows etc from where you got the information, thanks. Again I would like the information by January 25, Central time zone. thanks. o_0 (-; (-: (; (: :-) ;-) :) ;)
