Brief History :
Asian people came to America before 10000 BC. They were primarily living on hunting and fishing. On 12 Octobor,1492 , European explorer Christopher Columbus landed his ship in the new world .The first Spanish explorers landed in “La Florida” in 1513.on April 10, 1606, James I chartered the Virginia Company to establish the English settlements on the east coast of America. By the 1770s, thirteen British colonies contained two and a half million people. They were prosperous and growing rapidly, and had developed their own autonomous political and legal systems. The British Parliament asserted its authority over these colonies by imposing new taxes, which the Americans insisted were unconstitutional because they were not represented in Parliament. Growing conflicts turned into full-fledged war beginning in April 1775. On July 4, 1776, the colonies declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the United States of America.
At 3.79 million square miles (9.83 million km2) in total and with around 315 million people, the United States is the fourth-largest in total area, the fifth largest in the contiguous area and third in population. It is one of the world’s most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many countries.
