History of the US. In A Little Over 170 Years (from 1787 to 1959), the US grew from 13 colonies to 50 states. Click on a state to read a brief history and learn more about what is unique. We aim to be a source of information about the US history, present-day life, and interesting facts as we have a passion for statistics, facts, and historical records.
All suggestions and questions that will help us to make a website more interesting and helpful for students, teachers parents and other visitors are welcome.
