Who Named the United States? (Short Animated Documentary)

0
74

The United States of America. The USA. America. The Land of the Free. These are just some of the names for that continental sized nation which Alaska wishes it could touch. You’ll be surprised to know that other names were considered for the new nation during the American Revolution against Britain and that a name wasn’t settled on until the Constitutional Congress. Until other ideas, like Columbia or Fredonia were proposed. So why did the Founding Fathers choose the name ‘United States of America’. Find out in this video, the latest in my very short, animated historical documentaries (about history).

God Bless Fredonia.
