United States History

 
 
Many people think the "Pilgrims" discovered America - which is partly true.  They discovered it for more-or-less white Christian people.  Before them it was the Spanish man Christopher Columbus (like Columbus Day) and before him it was Indians, who like to be called "Native Americans".  History is full of surprises!
