WRONG! American traders went to Spain to trade, but accidentally found England instead. They settled the land, and after a couple of decades, it was very populated. But after the Spanish and French War, America needed to raise money, so they taxed England. England didn't take this, and revolted, declaring war. This was known as the English Revolution, and spies were sent everywhere. Undercover agents Thomas Jefferson and George Washington form the Declaration of Independence, and showed it to Congress. On July 4th, England gained their Independence from America, and lived happily forever after.
