Paleo-Indians moved from Eurasia to what is presently the U.S. terrain no less than 15,000 years back, with European colonization starting in the sixteenth century. The United States rose up out of 13 British settlements along the East Coast. Conflicts between Great Britain and the provinces prompted the American Revolution. On July 4, 1776, as the states were battling Great Britain in the American Revolutionary War, delegates from the 13 provinces collectively embraced the Declaration of Independence. The war finished in 1783 with acknowledgment of the freedom of the United States by the Kingdom of Great Britain, and was the first fruitful war of autonomy against an European pioneer realm. The nation's constitution was received on September 17, 1787, and confirmed by the states in 1788.

By the end of the Cold War and the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991 the United States emerged as the world's sole superpower.
