How can a country with little to no History but very recent one be the greatest one ? :stir:

Historic and historical are used in slightly different ways. Historic means ‘famous or important in history’, as in a historic occasion, whereas historical means ‘concerning history or historical events’, as in historical evidence; thus a historic event is one that was very important, whereas a historical event is something that happened in the past.
North America has no history,
Central and Southern America yes where you had the Mayans and later the Aztecs and Incas,
but north america, not really a lot going on, unless im missing something?
