Preceded by Colonial American Military History

"The military history of the United States spans a period of over two centuries. What began as Colonial states fighting Great Britain for independence during the American Revolution (1775-1783), continuing with the War of 1812 which eventually led to a Civil War (1861-65). Its entry into contemporary world wars marked an end to its traditional isolationism, and led to its superpower status during the late 20th and early 21st century." Source: US Military History

When they have been researched, a category for that will be created as United States of America, [war] which will link to the [war], and the main [war] category will have United States Military History removed from it.
