Pioneer,
a person who is among the first to explore
or settle a new country or area.

Settler,
a person who moves with a group of others
to live in a new country or area.

The first pioneers to this land mass, arrived here
(it is estimated)
between 25,000 and 12,000 years ago.

They were the ancestors of the people,
because of geographical errors,
we have named American Indians.

They didn’t have a written language,
helped those that did,
and landed long before Plymouth Rock.

The new settlers and pioneers
were determined to own land
that was never owned before.

Here we have a lasting example
that both the pen and the sword
have created our great country.
