Unit One: begins with the arrival of the first Americans after the last Ice Age and traces a great sweep of history through settlement by diverse groups of colonists. For the first time, complex societies of Native Americans come into contact with people from Europe and Africa. The result is a cultural mingling full of tension and adaptation for both the Native Americans and the newcomers. British colonies develop, expand, and mature. By 1763 a new America culture and sense of Identity has developed.
