The U.S originated from the colonies formed by the Kingdom of England. After being ruled by the Crown for several years, the colonies began expressing their grievances regarding imperial rule. When these grievances mounted, the colonies sought the cooperation of other colonies, in order to be united when opposing the British Empire.
This led to the formation of the Continental Congress, the Declaration of Independence, the American Revolutionary War, and then finally, independence. The nineteenth century represents a turning point for national sentiment in the United States. A national community emerged after much struggle, the American Civil War and reforms. Amendments were made to grant people U.S citizenship, and the Indian Citizenship Act was passed by the Congress in 1924.
