The United States of America, often referred to as the greatest country on Earth, is a country conceived in the idea of liberty. On July 4, 1776, a day now referred to as "Independence Day", the Declaration of Independence was signed, officially freeing America from the control of Great Britain. Eleven years later, the thirteen colonies adopted the United States Constitution, which outlined the basic principles on which the country was founded.
The USA has ended up being one of the most powerful and influential nations on Earth, but in recent history this has led to many misendeavours like the Vietnam War, Iraq War and the Second Afghan War.
