Christoper Columbus was the first to cross the Atlantic Ocean. He landed in the Bahamas. While he was on the trip he had a thought that could not be answered for a long time it was "Is the world round or flat". Later on the trip he was surprise to find out the that there were people living there before he got there Indians were there. This is important because he was the one to find the land we are living on.
Another event is when we had the first President. George Washington. I chose this event because when he was elected It meant that we were officially our own country with our own government not a king a leader not England's government .
Lastly the Louisiana purchase. Two men in 1803 James Monroe & Robert Livingston went to France to buy New Orleans and west Florida for $10,000,000. Napoleon said he would give them this Louisiana territory for $15,000,000. We said yes and bought Louisiana. Later we found out that the Louisiana doubled our country's size.
