early American history began with the collision of European, West
African, and Native American peoples in North America. Europeans
discovered America by accident, and then created empires out of
the conquest of indigenous peoples and the enslavement of Africans.
The American history began in a biological and cultural collision
of Europeans, Native Americans, and Africans. Europeans initiated
this contact and often dictated its terms. For Native Americans
and Africans, American history began in disaster.
In the century before Columbus sailed to America, Western Europeans
were developing the necessary wealth and technology and a compelling
need to explore. A group of new monarchs were making nation-states
in Britain and in continental Europe—states with unprecedented
large treasuries and military establishments.
The most disastrous consequence of the long-term isolation of the
Americas was biological. Asians, Africans, and Europeans had been
exposed to one another’s diseases for millennia; by 1500,
they had developed an Old World immune system that partially protected
them from most diseases. On average, Native Americans were bigger
and healthier than the Europeans who first encountered them. But
they were helpless against European and African diseases. Smallpox
was the biggest killer, but illnesses such as measles and influenza
also killed millions of people. The worst wave of epidemics in human
history cleared the way for European conquest.
The United States of America is a federal republic on the continent
of North America.

Culture and Society
The American culture is rich and complex. People express
their culture through traditions in food, clothing, recreation,

especially in language, the arts, and political institutions, American
culture possess popular tastes in music, dress, entertainment, and
