It explores the history of the French presence in North America from the first decades of the 16th century to the end of the 19th century. Through direct digital access to complete books, maps, prints, and other documents from the collections of the partner libraries, the project illuminates two major themes in the history of relations between France and the United States: the role played by France in the exploration and settlement of the continent and its participation in several events which indelibly marked the history of the United States: the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, and the Louisiana Purchase. The Library of Congress and the Bibliothèque nationale de France present these documents as part of the record of the past.
