Early America is the epic first song of the 50 song HistoryTunes collection. There are two main ideas addressed in this song. First, Early America takes listeners on a 30,000 year journey from the first crossing over the Beringia Land Bridge to the landing of Columbus. Key stops are 30,000 years ago, 15,000 years ago, 10,000 years ago, 5000 years ago and 500 years ago. The second important topic this song stresses is the fact that the myriad of Native American people on the continent were each unique.
Key terms and vocabulary for this song include Beringia Land Bridge and Columbus.
