1893 World Fair in Chicago was planned as a celebration of Columbus discovery of America, but it was a Viking ship that stole the show

Scandinavians in Chicago, yesterday and today is our first Scandinavian historic video we produced.  The Story of the Viking ship will be our second in a proposed series.  This is an example of the kind of productions we produce.http://youtu.be/6QdYEEkyB2k

Although there are a few articles on the Viking Ship's journey from Norway to America and The 1893 World Columbian Exhibition in Chicago's Jackson Park, to our knowledge there has never been a video or documentary ever made on this exciting and inspirational story.

The 1893 World's Fair was planned as a celebration of Columbus' discovery of America, but it was a Viking ship that stole the show.

The ship had sailed all the way from Norway without any help from other vessels. The captain was Magnus Andersen  who defied the Atlantic storms and proved that the Viking era sagas were not just stories, and that the Vikings could very well have made the crossing Long Before Columbus. Captain Andersen and his crew of eleven were welcome in the United States as heroes, but today most people today are unaware of both the Ship, a replica of an authentic ancient Viking Ship, and its brave crew. This is a story that must be told and it will be of interest to all Americans who love history and adventure, especially Scandinavian Americans, of whom there are millions living in the U.S. today
