Paleo-Indians migrated from Eurasia (Settlement of the Americas) to what is now the U.S. mainland around 15,000 years ago, with European colonization (European colonization of the Americas) beginning in the 16th century. The United States emerged from 13 British colonies (Thirteen Colonies) located along the East Coast (East Coast of the United States). Disputes between Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain) and the colonies led to the American Revolution. On July 4, 1776, as the colonies were fighting Great Britain in the American Revolutionary War, delegates from the 13 colonies unanimously issued the Declaration of Independence (United States Declaration of Independence). The war ended in 1783 with the recognition of independence of the United States (Treaty of Paris (1783)) from the Kingdom of Great Britain, and was the first successful war of independence against a European colonial empire. The United States is the only country that ever won its independence from Great Britain by war. Greene, Jack P.; Pole, J.R., eds. (2008). ''A Companion to the American Revolution''. pp. 352–361. The current Constitution (United States Constitution) was adopted on September 17, 1787. The first ten amendments, collectively named the Bill of Rights (United States Bill of Rights), were ratified in 1791 and designed to guarantee many fundamental civil rights and freedoms (Natural and legal rights).
Driven by the doctrine of manifest destiny, the United States embarked on a vigorous expansion across North America throughout the 19th century. This involved displacing native tribes (American Indian Wars), acquiring new territories (United States territorial acquisitions), and gradually admitting new states (List of U.S. states by date of admission to the Union), until by 1848 the nation spanned the continent.
The United States is a developed country and has the world's largest national economy (List of countries by GDP (nominal)),
