Chapter I : The New Land

America is known by the European as "The New Land" after being discovered by Christopher Columbus in the year 1493. During that time, many Europeans were tired of the religion and Monarchy, so many of them wished to leave "the Old World"--the European countries. But the Europeans were not the first people who entered America, the Native Americans or "the Red Indians" have been living in America many generations before the arrival of the Europeans. So, the war began between the natives and the European army. The indian's arrows and axes cannot best the advance technologies and European gunpowder. After signing the peace treaty, they decided to share the land together. The Indians agreed to leave in the resticted area, while the Europeans started setting their colonies. The first thirteen colonies were Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont Kentucky, Tennessee, Maine, and West Virginia. So, that was the beginning of the United States.
