North American history

Travel topics > Cultural attractions > Historical travel > North American history

North American history contains many stories about how the indigenous peoples of North America were continually displaced by European settlers and sometimes killed. In addition, in Mexico and Central America, especially Guatemala, there are very impressive remains of the Mayan civilization, particularly quite a number of pyramids. There are notable old towns in Caribbean capitals such as Havana and San Juan, but also cities founded by the Spaniards on the Mainland, including St. Augustine, Florida; Granada, Nicaragua; Antigua Guatemala and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Pioneer villages are an important part of both Canadian and U.S. history. Other important part of U.S. history include the American Civil War and indigenous heritage such as New Mexico Pueblos and Ohio prehistoric sites.
