What is the European conquest of America?


Europeans conquered the New World from many directions, representing mostly the British, Spanish and French empires at the time.  Columbus explored and introduced the idea that Europeans were permanently interested in colonizing and conquering the land, but the first real conquest took place under the conquistadores, such as Hernan Cortes in 1519, when he began his year and a half long conquest of the Aztecs.  Francisco Pizarro followed in the early 1530's with the Inca civilization in present day Peru.

Later in 1607, Jamestown was founded as the first permanent English settlement, and the French established "New France" in Canada and Louisiana in the 1650s and 1660's.

Full conquest took place under the Americans in the late 1800's as the last of Native resistance was crushed.
