United States of America history cartoon buddy
(Only one love... his country)
Hello Buddy... The United States Of America is a democratic nation that has been forged in the face of much adversity by people of practically every other country on this planet that had all come there to seek a peaceful new beginning from oppression and enjoy a better way of life and free expression of Religions and Speech. Time however has been a very stormy journey indeed for this new country.
War with the native American Indian. Revolution war and freedom from the British crown. Slavery of the native African for cheap labour and a costly North and South civil war that ended it, to create a unified ‘United’ States. War too with it's neighbour Mexico and world wars against anti democratic ‘oppressive’ states.
In today's human wacky weird world this new country has become the main economic and military engine that powers the idea of democracy (the free vote) worldwide.
The early settlers (from everywhere) have given rise to the ‘new Americans’ and that the whole American people are virtually the distant cousins of the populations of just about every other country on the planet. Most human folks seem to forget that.
What some choose to forget or who have forgotten that the price for this freedom was mainly taken at the expense of the Native American Indians who lost so much, but in doing so ironically allowed so much freedom to be given to much of the rest of the world. A sacrifice and debit rarely noted.
My history notes.
Here is how the President's started. Around 15000 BC the earliest settlers of North America migrated to the area via Alaska (which at the time was linked physically to Europe via modern day Russia. These peoples then evolved into the native American 'Red-Indians'.
Around 1513 AD Spain started to explore the Florida region (Ponce de Leon explorer) and by 1540 AD the North-American South west was explored by Spain's Francisco Coranado.
1565 the Spanish created the first settlement in Florida.
1585 Sir Walter Raleigh established an unsuccessful settlement on Roanoke island Virginia. But by 1607 a successful settlement (Jamestown) Virginia had evolved and was growing tobacco for export.
1620 The Pilgrim fathers landed near Cape Cod and founded Plymouth Colony New England.
Flag of the USA
The 13 stripes on the Stars and Stripes' flag represent the original 13 colonies. The 50 stars represent the 50 states of the Union.
The first design of the flag was created in 1777 and still retains the basic format.
