Title Train of Thought: Samuel Eliot Morison
Scope & Content Train of Thought Subtalk History Car Card with a quote by Samuel Eliot Morison )1887-1976) from The Oxford History of the American People (1965): America was discovered accidentally by a great seaman who was looking for something else; when discovered it was not wanted; and most of the exploration for the next fifty years was done in the hope of getting through or around it. America was named after a man who discovered no part of the New World. History is like that, very chancy.
