Great Britain was the Mother Country of the 13 American Colonies that are now part of the US. Other countries that had colonies in the Americas include Russia, France and Spain. Some of these former colonies (Alaska, Louisianas, Texas, California, etc.) are also part of today's US, though they were not part of the original 13 states.

At one point, each of the original thirteen colonies belonged to England. They were not called the United States at the time, but got that title after independence in 1776.
