Culture and history in America
In 1492, the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, under contract with the Spanish monarchy, arrived in several Caribbean islands, which marked the first contact with the indigenous population. On the second day of April 1513, the Spanish Conquistador Juan Ponce de Leon reached what he called “La Florida”, the first documented European arrival of what was later called the United States. Spanish settlements in the region were followed by others in the southwestern United States, which pushed thousands towards Mexico. French fur merchants set up trade points of New France around the Great Lakes region; France also controlled much of the interior of North America, all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

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

 

 

In 1674, the Dutch ceded their American possessions to England; And named the province of New Holland after the name of New York. Many new immigrants, especially immigrants from the South, were contracted to work as servants, which accounted for about two-thirds of the immigrants to Virginia between 1630 and 1680. With the entry of the eighteenth century, African slaves became the main source of the workforce. After the division of the colony of Carolina in 1729, and the colonization of Georgia in 1732, the thirteen British colonies were established, which would later become the nucleus of the United States. All of them included free, elected, local governments available to all free men, due to the growing admiration for the traditional rights of the Englishman and the sense of autonomy that underpins the tendency of a republican system. They also all legalized the African slave trade.

 

 

The population density of the colonies increased dramatically 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, sparked people’s interest in religion and religious freedom. During the Indian and French War, British forces captured Canada from France, however the French-speaking population remained politically isolated from the southern colonies. With the exception of the Native Americans (known as the “Native Americans”) who became homeless, the population of the Thirteen Colonies reached 2.6 million in 1770, with the British accounting for a third of that, while black Americans a fifth of the population. The American colonists were not represented in the Parliament of Great Britain, although they did pay British taxes.
