As per the History of the United States reference book, 1874, Boston, The first European settlement in North America was Spanish. Most people who came to North America in the 1600 were English.

The first settlements were along the Atlantic coast and on rivers that flowed into the ocean. People from europe came for different reasons. Some left their homes to escape war in their country. Some of them sought political or religious freedom. Some had to work as servants to pay back the cost of their trip. Some, like Black Africans, brought them (arrived) as slaves. Many people were farmers and mostly know farming. Some owned small farms that they worked themselves. The wealthy persons who are farmers owned large plantations and used African slaves as workers. In time, the 13 colonies developed within three distinct regions. The relations between Native Indians and settlers are different from region to region, some have bad and some have friendly, as settlement grows the european settlers forced the Native Indians to move as the new rules were framed from time to time and governed mainly by the european country kings and law makers, a distant government, mostly British. The American Settlers Revolution and the war for independence from Britain assumed to began with a small fight between British troops and colonists on 1775.
