Leif Erikson
Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
    Son of Eric the Red
    Settled and explored North America
    Converted to Christianity and succeeded in converting his mother as well
    His earlier life, including when he was born, is shrouded in mystery.
    He may have never landed in North America but simply was the first European to see it.
    Most of the areas he explored or attempted to colonize were extremely desolate.
    He named a huge chunk of mostly uninhabitable permafrost and ice Greenland to attract settlers.
    Its kind of hard to be credited for discovering a land when its already been populated by indigenous peoples.
    He probably made it to North America 500 years before Christopher Columbus, the man who is largely credited with making it first.
    Lyndon Johnson, backed by a unanimous Congress, proclaimed October 9 to be Leif Erikson Day.
