History

The history of the United States begins with the Native Americans. Thousands of Native American tribes lived in the United States, including the Navajos, Cherokee, and Algonquians. The English were the first Europeans to colonize the United States, but were soon followed by the French. The English expanded into thirteen colonies and fought a war with the French in the 18th century. After the war, the English forced the Americans to pay extremely high taxes that the Americans did not like. The American Revolution broke out in 1775. After the end of the American Revolution, the United States gained independence from the United Kingdom. In the 19th century, the United States expanded to the Pacific coast. With the help of immigrants, cities like San Francisco, Chicago, and New York became some of the largest and richest cities in the world. The American Civil War freed many slaves, although blacks continued to face racism in the United States. During the Industrial Revolution, the United States modernized and manufacturing became the main industry. In the 20th century, the United States became the most powerful country in the world. After helping to defeat Germany in WWII, the United States launched its space program and became the first country to build an atomic bomb. The US became more involved in global affairs and was a founding member of NATO. Today, the United States is a country known for its modern cities and cultural diversity.
