U.S. Wars

U.S. Wars Pre-1900: A Historical Overview

America has a long history of battles and wars. Over 300 years ago, when the first settlers came from Europe, they had disagreements and fights with the Native Americans who were already here. Later, these settlers, who became the American colonies, got pulled into big fights that were happening in Europe. One of the biggest battles was the Revolutionary War, where America fought to become its own country, separate from England. As time went on, America had more wars, like the Civil War where the country fought against itself. Throughout history, America had many fights, especially with countries like England, France, Spain, and with Native Americans.
