This Day in History (TDIH): 1492 – Christopher Columbus arrives to the North American Bahamian Islands, believing to have landed in East Asia.
Fact of the Day (FOTD): Contrary to popular belief, Columbus was not the first seafaring adventurer to explore the Americas. The Vikings set up colonies in Greenland and Newfoundland in the 10th century, 500-plus years before Columbus arrived.
Quote of the Day (QOTD):
