    Best answer: There was no USA till well after 1776.

    Systematic European colonization began in 1492, when a Spanish expedition headed by the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus sailed west to find a new trade route to the Far East but inadvertently landed in what came to be known to Europeans as the "New World". Running aground on the northern part of Hispaniola on 5 December 1492, which the Taino people had inhabited since the 7th century, the site became the first European settlement in the Americas. European conquest, large-scale exploration and colonization soon followed. Columbus's first two voyages (1492–93) reached the Bahamas and various Caribbean islands, including Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and Cuba. In 1498, John Cabot, on behalf of England, landed on the North American coast, and a year later, Columbus's third voyage reached the South American coast. As the sponsor of Christopher Columbus's voyages, Spain was the first European power to settle and colonize the largest areas, from North America and the Caribbean to the southern tip of South America.

  • If the Nazis had dinosaurs, could they have won WWII?

    Best answer: As weapons, nowhere close. Pteranodons (recon?) were weak & slow and Tyrannosaurs were tall, highly-visible targets. A few mortar shells would down a huge theropod long before it could reach anyone. The latter also had the drawback of requiring vast amounts of meat.

    Best answer: As weapons, nowhere close. Pteranodons (recon?) were weak & slow and Tyrannosaurs were tall, highly-visible targets. A few mortar shells would down a huge theropod long before it could reach anyone.

    The latter also had the drawback of requiring vast amounts of meat. You could feed them human casualties, but using Allied dead would provide a propaganda weapon and using Axis dead would cause morale problems, so that would leave Holocaust casualties. Shipping the bodies from Poland to the front would be unsanitary, and murdering victims (or providing them to be devoured live) at the front would be bad for morale, logistics, and secrecy.

    The main problems are that dinos 1) don't use ranged weapons and 2) are stupid. Raptors are fast and *might* work for fights where they can get close enough (like nighttime or against forest partisans), but wars are won with logistics. My own choice would be cloned mammoths to pull supply wagons through the Russian cold & mud, provided I could feed them.

  • Do you think old doors at worth a lot?

    I have a SOLID OAK FRONT DOOR from 1900. I think this is worth lots of dollars because it’s an archive? I don’t know what do with this 20th century wooden door, I rarely use it and it’s sitting my garage collecting dust.

  • Is it controversial to say Hitler was a good leader?

    Best answer: Hitler was a great tactician, but not a great leader. His ability to rise to power and essentially brainwash his citizens to become racist and excessively nationalistic was impressive; but, plunging his nation into that war was a horrible move on his part as a leader. Germany had no chance of winning, ever. They... show more
    Best answer: Hitler was a great tactician, but not a great leader. His ability to rise to power and essentially brainwash his citizens to become racist and excessively nationalistic was impressive; but, plunging his nation into that war was a horrible move on his part as a leader. Germany had no chance of winning, ever. They just had the ability to do damage, but not to win the war. If he had known this, he wouldn't have gone to war; but, he did anyway because he was a poor leader. Plus he a had a drug problem.
