The Colonial American history covers the history from the 16th century up to the incorporation of the new colonies into the new United States of America. During this time, there were several wars fought for the control of colonies such as the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. During this period, Americans were divided into different colonies as per their nationality. There was an agreement reached between King George III and France to have a strong, unified America that would be a part of Great Britain. Thus, there were five major colonial periods, which are the First Colonial Period, Second Colonial Period, Third Colonial Period, Fourth Colonial Period, and Fifth Colonial Period. The Fourth and Fifth Colonial Periods saw the growth of major cities such as Boston, New York, and Washington D.C.
Education is an important part of this history as it influenced the later development of society in America. This includes education for the common man, such as education on the rights and freedoms given by the Constitution, education about the English language and other related subjects such as math, reading, history, and science. During the colonial period, literacy became the norm for all, especially in cities such as Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. In the past, literacy was viewed as a privilege only possessed by those with rich families. As a result of this, many families had to leave school before the age of 18. Today, literacy rates have reached 60% in major cities. Moreover, more students now go to college, which is a direct result of an increase in educational opportunities available in the United State of America during the colonial period.
During this time, new laws were created for the protection of Indians as well as slaves. Laws such as the Fugitive Slave Act, Slavery Abolition Act, and the Immigration Act of 1690 made it possible for American citizens to free their slaves, if they can't support them through some other means. As a result, the slave trade in America declined drastically. This period also saw the establishment of many of the key institutions of our nation such as the Supreme Court, the House of Representatives, and the Senate of the United States.
