How much do you really know about North America? If you're from the United States, your history class focused on American history from a U.S. perspective. However, Canadians would protest if you tried to convince them that the United States won the War of 1812 because a case could be made that the United Kingdom, which Canada was then a part of, actually won the war.
You also cannot forget the United States' southern neighbor. The United States fought Mexico in the Mexican-American War. While that war had a clear winner, both countries were left with some confusingly named places. New Mexico is not part of Mexico, but Baja California is. At least, it's not quite a case of the two Vancouvers. There's a Vancouver in Washington state and the well-known one in Canada.
Further south, there are Mexico's southern neighbors, which are Guatemala and Belize, in Central America. If you go even further, you will find more countries. Eventually, you'll get to Panama, which has a history tied to the United States. We've touched on a lot of history, and we haven't even mentioned the peoples in North America before European settlers!
