People are coming to America-all kinds of people. If you’re European, you come in search of freedom or riches. If you’re African, you come in chains. And what about the Indians, what is happening to them? Soon with the influx of so many people, thirteen unique colonies are born, each with its own story. Meet Pocahontas and John Smith in Jamestown. Join William Penn and the Quakers in Pennsylvania. Sit with the judges at the Salem witch trials. Hike over the mountains with Daniel Boone. And let Ben Franklin give you some salty advice in his Poor Richard’s Almanac in this remarkable journey through the dynamic creation of what one day becomes the United States.
