European Colonization of North America

European Colonization of North America

The invasion of the North American continent and its peoples began with the Spanish in 1565 at St. Augustine, Florida. While Native Americans resisted European efforts to amass land and power during this period, they struggled to do so while also fighting new diseases introduced by European colonization and Europeans' enslavement and forced transportation of Africans to the Americas.
