In 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers, a band of Puritans in
England who sought freedom of worship, set forth
for America in the sailing-ship Mayflower.
Three months after leaving Plymouth Harbour, they
reached the shores of what is now called new
England, and Founded the America township of
Plymouth. Although they often had difficult times
with the native Red Indian tribes, the colony soon
prospered and more and more settlers joined them.
The Indians used a new kind of grain, which the
settlers called "Indian corn" (now termed maize) and
they ate strange birds called turkeys. On the fourth
Thursday of November the Americans celebrate
Thanksgiving Day with a feast of turkey and Indian
corn.
The USA is situated in the central part of the North
American continent.

and its eastern coast- by the Atlantic Ocean.
At 3.79 million square miles (9.83 million km²)
and with more than 300 million people, the
United States is the third or fourth largest
country by total area, and third largest by land
area and by population.

America, commonly known as "The Starts

50 stars and 13 stripes. Each star
represents a present-day state and each
stripe stands for one of the original colonies.
The national anthem is the "Star Spangled
Banner" and the national emblems are the
eagle and the buffalo. The national sport
may be said to be baseball.
