Best Answer

The original 13 colonies gained their independence from Great Britain. Later other states such as California, Texas, Florida, New Mexico gained their independence from Spain. Alaska was bought from Russia. Many of the mid-west states (Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas, etc) came as part of the Louisiana purchase from the control of France. Michigan was also part of Canada, and therefore under British control, for a few years. Washington state and Oregon were ceded to US control by the UK in the Oregon Treaty.
