Did Amerigo Vespucci discover America?|
No! On 12 October 1492 Christopher Columbus was the first to reach land to the west of America in the Bahamas. Christopher Columbus was followed by Vespucci and many other explorers who were all searching for a passage to the Indies. In 1507 the German mapmaker Martin Waldseemuller, printed the first map that used the name 'America' for the New World clearly named after Amerigo Vespucci.
