About America Invades

Ever since they first set foot on the North American continent, humans have explored, discovered, established boundaries—and subsequently invaded—all across the territory we now call the United States. In America Invaded, we track some of the many explorations and invasions that founded or destroyed towns, that set and reset state lines, and that shaped the peoples and culture of this nation.

 

Follow along as authors Christopher Kelly and Stuart Laycock take you on a state by state guide of US military history and little known regional facts.
