Britain's American colonies broke with the
mother country in 1776 and were recognized
as the new nation of the United States of
America following the Treaty of Paris in
1783. During the 19th and 20th centuries,
37 new states were added to the original 13
as the nation expanded across the North
American continent and acquired a number
of overseas possessions. The two most
traumatic experiences in the nation's history
were the Civil War (1861-65) and the Great
Depression of the 1930s. Buoyed by
victories in World Wars I and II and the end
of the Cold War in 1991, the US remains the
world's most powerful nation state. The
economy is marked by steady growth, low
unemployment and inflation, and rapid
advances in technology.
