AmericanHistoryunderFrenchInfluences Photo How has the History of the very last superpower been influenced by a European country called France? Very simple, we only need to go back to the 16th and 17th centuries when North America was being discovered by Spanish, Italians, English, Dutch and French explorers. French explorers discovered and mapped the Mississippi river and discovered a large part of Canada. New France, the area colonized by France, covered a large part of the current United States. The French army brought support to the Continental Army during the War of Independence against Great Britain. Founding Fathers of the United States were influenced by the French philosophers of the Enlightenment. The two world wars of the 20th century, that took place in Europe, brought the US Army in Europe and France. In this quiz, we will see when and how the historical paths of both countries crossed each other. Enjoy!!
