They weren’t the earliest European colonists in the land that became the United States, but they did provide the foundations and they weren’t afraid to abandon the home country when their interests were at stake. Coming soon the story of the English Americans.
The English arrived in Canada shortly after the French in the early 1500s. But Canada would likely be French dominated today or part of the United States without a remarkable series of events. English speakers and their cultures came to rule only after the unlikely creation of the United Kingdom in 1707, followed by the arrival of loyalists kicked out of the new United States. Coming soon the remarkable story of how Canada became British; and the ultimate twist in the tale: how the Scots newly allied with their former English enemies, defeated and then saved French Canada, leading to the creation of the country the world knows today.
