The Coolest Places to Visit from Colonial America

It may only be about two and a half centuries old, but the United States of America has a lot of history. Wars, innovations, and civil revolutions are indelible parts of American culture, from before it was even a country. Before the Declaration of Independence, America was merely 13 colonies trying to survive under British rule. There were many times, places, and people that led to a break from Britain, and, luckily, much of that history has been preserved. Revolutionary War landmarks are all of the place, and they're part of our heritage.

But which ones do you absolutely need to check out while sightseeing? If you have an interest in American history but aren't quite sure where to go, scope the list; it's got all the essential early American sites for you, the ultimate primer for everything from the pilgrims to the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
