The Invasion of America

The Native Americans

The Invasion of America happened once as Christopher Columbus wanted to set sail to Asia in 1492. He wanted to determine to find a direct water route west from Europe to Asia, but he never did. Instead he accidentally stumbled upon the Americas. As once as they settled the Europeans was eager to get land from this ‘new world.’ The way they had got land from the Native Americans was that they had killed them. By killing them they had given them horse blankets that had diseases. ‘Since there was no immunity for these diseases, thousands of Native Americans began to die and let them die off, from such as measles, small pox and yellow fever. In addition, Europeans had started to take over land and set up farms and homes there.’
