  1. 1 and 3 are fine.

    In order to use the plural possessive (Americans'), there must be a noun right after the possessive for it to own.

    Here are some examples:

    The boys' toys were all over the front yard.
    We wanted to see my friends' new performance.

    Rethink #2 and repost.
