apr 21, 1732 - 13 Colonies
Since the establishment of Jamestown, more and more colonist arrived in the New World until eventually thirteen large distinct colonies were established, covering almost the entire North American East Coast .
The last of these colonies was the Province of Georgia which was legally established in 1732. At this point the entire population of the colonies totalled just over half a million people, the majority of which where Protestant English-speakers. Their politics and legal system were similar throughout the colonies and although London attempted to exercise more control over them, the Thirteen Colonies managed to maintain a high degree of self-governance.
Many Native Americans that formally occupied the land were displaced and forced to move West, or died in wars with the colonists as well as from the European diseases.
