No. You know that there couldn't have been any in 1400 because Columbus didn't even discover America until 1492. The first English attempt at settlement was in the late 1500's on Roanoke Island in what is now North Carolina. The first permanent English colony was founded at Jamestown, Virginia in 1607. The first settlements in Canada were French and it remained French until the English conquered it in the Seven Years War (Also called the French and Indian War) in the 1750's. Actualy your wrong. Leif Ericson was the first person to colonize Canada in about 1024. With his colony the Norse or Vikings. More input from FAQ Farmers: * Actually, I've heard musings of settlers in the Nova Scotia area around 1398, nearly a century before Columbus, if what I hear is correct they were Knights Templars who were escaping religious persecution and used old Nordic maps to arrive there. * There is NO prrof of settlement in Nova Scotia in the 1300's, BUT there is archeological proof of NORSE inhabitants in North West Newfoundland, at Lans"A Meadows, which is now a Canadian National Park. They were there for a number of years, at about 1,000 years ago. Can you guys make up your minds?!
The British troops moved on Lexington and Concord in an attempt to seize a reported arms cache, and to attempt the capture of John Hancock and Samuel Adams. The information obtained by the British concerning the existence of the arms and the whereabouts of Hancock and Adams was good, but the two patriots were warned of the British movement by Paul Revere, and the colonials chose to stand and fight rather than retire, thus starting the war for American Independence.
because they felt like it
The invasion of the Bay Of Pigs was not an official U. S. government action, although there were elements of the government who were aware of the invasion, and had helped to prepare for it. During the early part of the 20th century, a great deal of money was invested in Cuba by U. S. interests, including Mafia families. Hotels, casinos, resorts, plantations, and other infrastructure was built to make Cuba a tourists paradise. However, the native people of Cuba were not allowed to reap the rewards of this investment, instead being treated nearly as slaves. This created a political environment that was ripe for revolution, and, in 1959, Fidel Castro led a popular revolt that threw out the American installed government led by Fulgencio Batista. Many Cubans with ties to the United States fled their homeland at that time, emigrating en masse to Florida. A group of Cubans who wanted to remove Castro from power approached the U. S. government seeking military intervention in Cuba, but could not find high officials willing to go against what had been a very popular uprising. However, certain members of the military were able to channel arms and other military equipment to a band of Cubans who also received the benefit of training by military personel. This private army went ashore at the Bay Of Pigs, only to encounter much stiffer resistance than they had anticipated. They contacted their friends in the American government, and requested that the American military launch airstrikes against the revolutionaries. This request was the first thing that President John F. Kennedy had heard of the counter-revoltution, and he denied the request. The counter-revolutionaries were soundly defeated, which they blamed entirely upon President Kennedy. There are those who believe that Kennedy's refusal to support the invasion was partially to blame for his assination, but there is no proof of this.
