On 5 March 1496, King Henry VII of England issued letters patent to John Cabot (signed documents show that he referred to himself as "Zuan Chabotto") to explore the unknown la…nds across the Atlantic Ocean. In 1496 Cabot set out from Bristol, England with one ship, but was forced to return because of disputes with the crew.

The first colony was twice established at Roanoke Island in Virginia. Sir Walter Raleigh sponsored an expedition in 1585, under Ralph Lane and Richard Grenville. The colony re…turned to England with Sir Francis Drake in 1586. A second expedition was led by John White in 1587. When White sailed back to England for supplies, some 115 colonists, including White's granddaughter Virginia Dare, were left there. But when supply ships returned in 1590, the settlers had vanished, leaving only cryptic clues.

In the 18th century, England was at war with several countries including France and Spain. The three countries mentioned were all power players with land in Central America an…d North America. The British Colonies were growing at an extreme rate and expansion west was inevitable. However, the Native Americans posed a threat to the colonies and Britain. France saw this as an opportunity and though both sides fought with Native Americans, France united with most of them. To protect its investment, Britain was forced to spend millions of dollars to supply and protect the colonies. Even though the success of the war was secured, it came with a cost so large, it doubled England's debt. Unable to pay for it on their own, many thought it was fair to impose the colonists to pay it off. This sparked controversy as being left alone by the British for several decades unleveled the colonists comfort zone. Since the colonists couldn't vote for or against the taxes due to their lack of representation in Parliment, the saw it as unfair to be taxed. This ignited the flame of revolution as the colinists soon fought for equality and then, independence!!! The victory of the colonists thus separated America from Britain.
