The River Gambia flows through the centre of the country and empties into the Atlantic Ocean. On 18 February 1965, The Gambia became independent from the British Empire. Banjul is its capital.

You left out a bunch, such as, In 1526, Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón founded the colony San Miguel de Guadalupe in present day Georgia or South Carolina. The colony only lasted a short while before disintegrating. It was also notable for perhaps being the first instance of African slave labor within the present boundaries of the United States. Also, you missed the little tidbit about John Casor, a black man, who In 1654,became the first legally recognized slave in the present United States. A court in Northampton County ruled against Casor, declaring him property for life, "owned" by the black colonist Anthony Johnson. There is much more ... but those are some of the more interesting. I am not sure where you got the economy boomed under carter... maybe you meant tanked? Under carter, it was described in terms of the "misery index," and the word "stagflation"
