I really learned a lot when I was researching about Italian Americans. My question was what contributions did Italian Americans make to the United States. One random fact I found during research was the October is National Italian American Heritage Month.
Some contributions I found while researching were that Italians created the Bank of America, Blimpie and Subway Sandwhich shops, Planter's Peanut Company, Jacuzzi's, the Mr. Coffee maker, the Big Mac at McDonalds, the Chocolate Bar, and the Cough drop. Also there were significant contributions in sports such as football and baseball. Also, the one I found the most interesting was that John Cabot discovered North America in 1497. I had always been told growing up that Christopher Columbus discovered America. However, this class has shown me that that is not true.
Good luck on the test and the rest of the presentations.
