Check my answer please I want to make sure I didn't leave something out, I was suppose to explain Spain, France, and England's settlements.
In English colonies the earliest settlements were in Virginia and Massachusetts but soon spread all along the Atlantic coast, from Maine to Georgia, and into the continent’s interior as far as the Mississippi River. In France the first colonies were trading posts in
Newfoundland. Others followed in wake of exploration of the St. Lawrence valley,
parts of Canada, and the Mississippi River. Settlements include Quebec, Montreal, and Louisiana. Spain’s settlements include St. Augustine, Florida, Santa Fe, New Mexico, and numerous cities in Texas and California.
I already wrote about their economic and political structures I just want to make sure I didn't leave out any places they have settled.

Ms. Sue will be online soon, and she will be able to tell you if you've missed any places where colonies or settlements were established.
Ok thanks again!
By the way, Maine was part of Massachusetts and Vermont was either New Hampshire or New York depending on who you asked :)
