A study of American history shows that Africans were involved in the development of the American continents. But the facts are not in an inclusive document. This article highlights their major contributions to the exploration of the Americas, American War of Independence, and the Civil War. Others are the development of the U.S. Armed Forces, science and technology, economic development, arts, and culture. The paper also outlined the Niger Delta gifts to the Americas.
