History

I have to write an essay about if I think Columbus Day should be celebrated or not. I have decided to take the approach talking about how he really wasn't the first to discover America, unlike kids are taught in elementary school. The problem is, who really was the first to discover America? The Vikings, or was it Amerigo Vespucci? Or should I mention both in my essay?

Thanks in advance. :)

    That's easy --

    Native Americans discovered the Americas over 10,000 years ago. They came from northeast Asia and lived here long, long before the Vikings or Columbus sailed here.

    The Vikings were apparently the first Europeans to find America.
