North America

We all remember the poem of Christopher Columbus sailing the ocean blue in 1492. Then discovering North America, which he thought was India, but it turned out he discovered new land. Well before he discovered it, it was sparsely inhabited and had only two permanent civilization, the Hopewell, and the Anasazi civilizations. Spain, France, and Rome dominated the colonization of the Americas.

 There were 13 colonies in North America they were, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. Theses colonies officially became the United States of America in 1781.

The British made several attempts to stop the growing of the United States, one being the Navigation Acts basically declared that only English ships would be allowed to bring goods into England, so the colonies could only buy and sell to Britain. As we all know this did not sit well for the colonies, and it ended up hurt the British more than helping it.

The United States of America is the most powerful and influential country in the world today. We have come so far. We have abolished slavery; we are all equals in the eyes of the law. We have sports, computers, religious freedom, we even have Ryan Gosling, and Zac Efron. America is doing so well for itself even during this pandemic. I am really excited to see what the future holds for us.
