This article discusses the Hispanic heritage of the U.S. Even before there was a U.S., Hispanics were present in what would become this country. Beginning in the sixteenth century, Spanish explorers traversed North America, and their explorations encouraged settlement as early as the sixteenth century in what is now northern New Mexico and Florida, and as late as the mid-eighteenth century in what is now southern Texas and California. At the close of the nineteenth century, the U.S. war with Spain brought Cuba and Puerto Rico into an interactive relationship with the U.S., the latter in a special political and economic affiliation with the U.S. even as American power influenced the course of almost every other Latin American country.
