Best Answer

The term "US of America" is a political one and refers to the country whilst "America" is geographical. It is certain that the Vikings reached North America before Columbus as Viking artifacts have been found. Properly speaking, those who 'discovered' the Americas were the people who migrated across the Bering Strait during the last Ice Age.

Probably the Siberians that crossed into what is now Alaska. Some stuck around and are generally called Eskimos. Others migrated south and became our American Indians. Others migrated down into what is now Mexico, Central America, and South America, becoming Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas, among many other tribes.
