Who deserves credit for America?

By: Tyler Chadwick

The native Americans

I believe that the native Americans because there is record of the native Americans going to the new land from Asia. The main reason why I think the native Americans were there first is because Columbus tried to push them out when he claimed he discovered america.

Columbus

I do not believe Columbus should get credit because when he first arrived he tried to claim the land that the native Americans were already living on. One main reason is he killed 3 million native Americans because they didn't bring him the supplies he wanted fast enough. He punished them by whipping and cutting their hands off.

Bjarni

I do not believe that Bjarni should get credit because he drifted by the land and looked at it but didn't land because he was looking for his father.

Hoei-Shin

I do not believe that Hoei-Shin should get credit because he found the land way after the native Americans were already there.

Leif

I do not believe that Leif should get credit because Bjarni told him about his finding of the land.
