Historically, there were great Empires, for example, the Roman

Empire. Later, England became a giant Empire. The British Empire

made colonies in various parts of the world. After Christopher

Columbus found the New World, England had more land to colonize and

make natives in those lands their "subjects". The land now called

The United States of America was originally fought over by several

countries, including France and Britain. After the French and

Indian War, Britain became the nearly sole ruler of the land. The

Crown of England began taxing and taxing subjects here, but the

colonists were fed up. This led to The Revolutionary War, one of

the steps taken to declaring independence from Britain.
