It all started in searching for the Northwest Passage...

Try to relate from day to day the great adventure begun in the 16th century that was the construction of the United States of America is obviously a project as crazy as exciting. Maybe is it even simply unrealistic ?

Follow the uncertain trails of those who were engaged into a project as ambitious as the conquest of a continent is not an easy work. Events which made history but also more ordinary facts that people lived over generations, characters who carved their name in memories or stepped incidentally into the limelight, happy or unfortunate hours, tragedies or dreams come true with in background the frontal clash of irreconcilable cultures one to the other, these are the purposes of this timeline.

With the help of dates, events, biographies, comments, illustrations, maps, follow the adventure from the beginning. It is time to weigh anchor and sail off Lizard Point to face the ocean and keep heading to this huge country called America.

Welcome aboard,

  1. Thank you for this work. I will be spending some time here for sure. Have you touched on Leif Erikson yet?

  2. As an American history teacher, working in China, trying to share my country's history, let me just tell you that this is maybe THE BEST online resource I have found! Thank you!
