Geography

The United States of America is the third largest country in the world. It has the world's largest economy and is one of the most influential nations. The USA borders both the North Atlantic and North Pacific Oceans and has frontiers with Canada and Mexico. The eastern regions consist of hills and low mountains while the central interior is a vast plain (called the Great Plains region) and the west has high rugged mountain ranges. Alaska also features rugged mountains as well as river valleys. Hawaii's landscape varies but is dominated by volcanic topography. The diversity of the USA allows you to choose from many types of holiday. 

History

Originally in 1732 the United States of America (USA) was formed of 13 colonies between which tension grew, and eventually led to the American Revolution, which was fought, from 1775-1781. On July 4, 1776, the colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence and following the American victory over the British in the war, the USA was recognized as independent of England. In 1788, the USA Constitution was adopted and in 1789, the first president, George Washington, took office. The USA grew rapidly following its independence, and then the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 nearly doubled the nation's size. The California Gold Rush of 1848-1849 also spurred western migration and the Oregon Treaty of 1846 gave the USA control of the Pacific Northwest.

In the mid-1800s the USA suffered severe racial tensions between the slave states and non-slave states which led to the Civil War and eleven states declared their secession from the union and formed the Confederate States. The Civil War lasted from 1861-1865 when the Confederate States were defeated.

The USA continued to grow throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and remained neutral at the beginning of World War I in 1914. It later joined the Allies in 1917.

Due to the economic growth in the 1920s the USA began to change into a world power, then the economy suffered in 1929 when the Great Depression began. The USA also remained neutral during World War II until Japan attacked Pearl Harbour in 1941, at which time the USA joined the Allies.

Following World War II, the USA economy again began to improve again. The Cold War followed shortly after as did the Korean War from 1950-1953 and the Vietnam War from 1964-1975. Following these wars, the USA economy grew industrially and the nation became the world superpower it is today
