About the Book Books on the History of the United States often begin with the discoveries of Christopher Columbus in 1492, which led to the establishment of a number of colonies on current US territory by the UK, Holland, Spain and France. These were consolidated under British rule, but the colonies broke free in the American War of Independence, 1775-1783. Other outstanding periods of US history include the American Civil War, conquest of the West and industrial growth, World War 1, the Great Depression, World War 2, and the Cold War.
