The Winnebago Indians were first discovered by the French in 1634, at the western end of Green Bay, Wisconsin. We do not know how long they had been living in this region, but based on the archaeological evidence, they did not reach Wisconsin much before A.D. 1400. The Winnebago’s were taller than other natives (taller than most Europeans). Their clothing was fringed buckskin, which the Winnebago frequently decorated with beautiful designs created from porcupine quills, feathers and beads .Men originally wore their hair in two long braids, but in time this changed to the scalp-lock and roach headdress favored by the Algonquin. Body tattooing was common to both genders.
As the Native people of the Subarctic Shield Archaic followed suit, Pre-Dorset peoples occupied the abandon interior land. However, by 800 B.C., all evidence of them disappears. The story of Arctic Small Tool tradition in Manitoba, represented by the Pre-Dorset occupation, is significant in that the sites represent the most southerly occupation of this culture. Giddings (1953) first identified it in northern Manitoba. The Thyazzi Site on the North Knife River was later tested by Nash in 1965 and assigned to an early to mid-Pre-Dorset occupation on the basis of the lithic assemblage (Nash 1969:48).
This made it difficult for the country to recover after the wars.  In 1803, Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours, a French nobleman, began to help negotiate with France at the request of Jefferson. Du Pont was living in the United States at the time and had close ties to Jefferson as well as the prominent politicians in France. He engaged in back-channel diplomacy with Napoleon on Jefferson's behalf during a visit to France and originated the idea of the much larger Louisiana Purchase as a way to defuse potential conflict between the United States and Napoleon over North
Alaska is America’s 49th state, and was admitted to the union on January 3, 1959. However, America did not discover or own Russia first. A Dutch explorer named Vitus Bering (who was working for Russia) and a Russian explorer named Alexei Chirikov discovered the Alaskan mainland and the small islands called the Aleutian islands which are a part of Alaska in 1741. The term “Aleutian” comes from the Aleut natives that were indigenous to Alaska along with many other
In 1804, two men, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark were sent out by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the land of the Louisiana Purchase. The two men were to determine if the new territory actually had something that could contribute to America, or if there was nothing new or of importance. They were told to study the plant life, animals, and the geography of the region, to map out the borders of the land. In addition, they were to discover if the area had any natural resources which could make the land beneficial to the economy. What they discovered in the Louisiana Purchase was massive; numerous Indian tribes, plant and animal species, and the Rocky Mountains.

Fort Nassau became Fort Orange in 1624, competing with the French and English trade centers in Canada and the Great Lakes region until the end of the eighteenth century. Initially, the Dutch cultivated a positive relationship with the Mahicans and Mohawks, and the fur business thrived. The van Rensselaer family(Killiaen, the patriarch never visited his “bouwerie”), from Nijkerk in the Dutch Republic, established its fiefdom in 1632, amassing one million acres on both sides of the Hudson River. His sons managed the farm, fur trade, and commerce with New Amsterdam, Amsterdam, and later, New York. In 1664, when New Netherland was ceded to the English, Beverwijck was renamed Albany.
Manifest Destiny is a term that was used in the 19th century to designate the belief that the United States was ordained to expand across the North American continent, from the Atlantic seaboard to the Pacific Ocean. Other ideas, such as American exceptionalism, Romantic nationalism, and a belief of natural superiority of the English-speaking people were a part of this era. John O’Sullivan coined the term “Manifest Destiny” in July/August 1845. Democrats supported the expansion plans of the Polk Administration, while several people opposed this expansion, such as, Henry Clay, and Abraham Lincoln. They
When the Louisiana Purchase was bought in 1803, Lewis and Clark went to discover the mysterious territory and see the changes that could be made into something great we see today. The quote “He’s cleaning up his system to keep his nature pure,” is part of the act in industrializing and having the country look better. Our country America is on going in learning new thing and is in constant motion of changing. Even today in America we are still trying to come up with new inventions and keep our country clean and pure. America still strives to be something great and eye catching to other people around the world.
