History
Before the arrival of the European rulers in the native North America, the natives were divided into many tribal groups. Many indigenous cultures flourished, like the Dorset culture, followed by the Thule people and the Clovis culture of modern New Mexico. The Mound builders are the most recent people inhabiting the continent; they flourished from 300 BC to 150 AD.

With the arrival of the Europeans, the native population declined because of the diseases that the Europeans brought with them. Movements for independence started in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries across the whole country. On July 4, 1776 the thirteen British colonies declared independence and the United States of America were formed.
