American culture and history


In 1492, the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, under contract with the Spanish monarchy, reached several islands of the Caribbean, which is the first contact with the natives. On the second day of April 1513, Spanish Conquistador Juan Ponce de Leon reached what he then called "La Florida", the first documented European arrival of what was later called the United States. Spanish settlements in the region were followed by other settlements in the southwestern United States, which drove thousands into Mexico. French fur traders set up trading posts belonging to New France around the Great Lakes region; France also controlled much of the interior of North America up to the Gulf of Mexico.


Virginia is the first successful English settlement of Jamestown in 1607, as well as Plymouth Colony in 1620. The charter of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1628 resulted in waves of immigration, and in 1634, some 10,000 Puritans settled New England. Between the late 1610s and the American Revolution, about 50,000 prisoners were shipped to the British American colonies.[21] Beginning in 1614, the Dutch settled on the banks of the Hudson River, including New Amsterdam, located on the island of Manhattan.


In 1674, the Dutch ceded their American possessions to England; New Holland County is named after New York. Many new immigrants, especially those to the South, were hired to work as servants, which represented about two-thirds of the immigrants to Virginia between 1630 and 1680. Entering the eighteenth century, African slaves became the main source of the labor force. After the division of the colony of Carolina in 1729, and the colonization of Georgia in 1732, the Thirteen British Colonies were established that would later become the nucleus of the United States. All included free local governments elected and available to all free men, due to the growing admiration for the traditional rights of the Englishman and the sense of self-government that underpinned republicanism. All of them also worked to legalize the African slave trade.


The population density of the colonies increased greatly due to high birth rates, low death rates, and regular migration. The Christian awakening that emerged between 1730 and 1740, known as the First Great Awakening, ignited people's interest in religion and religious freedom. During the French and Indian War, British forces captured Canada from France, yet the French-speaking population remained politically isolated from the southern colonies. Excluding the Native Americans (otherwise known as "Native Americans") who became homeless, the population of the Thirteen Colonies had reached 2.6 million in 1770, with the British accounting for one-third of that number, while the black Americans were one-fifth of the population. The American colonists had no representation in the Parliament of Great Britain, although they paid British taxes.
