It has a history and it starts way, way before 1776. Unlike many other countries histories, it has many points of view: Enslaved Africans, Native tribes, various immigrants etc. It's a big country, so every region has its own culture. How can people think America doesn't have a history? Your country may be thousands of years old, but so much can happen in 500 years too.

Those who think that America doesn't have a history , are simply showing their ignorance; Its not something I have heard often from knowledgeable people/ The sand and the clay that forms America wasn't trucked in at the last minutes when Columbus could be seen by Hispanola. So its pure ignorance, Where I live there are vestige of civilisation that date back 6,000 years ago, The land has more or less the same age on the planet , and not being an expert, I would not know how long humans have toiled our land. Probably as long as the rest of the world.
here is something to share and there is so much more its not even funny

I think many people think Americans don't have a history as there is a huge emphasis on the history from the civil war onward which in the grand scheme things, was fairly recent. However, another reason is that in comparison to other countries, the United States of America history (from when it was first formed, not with the natives) is very short. I find it unfair to say America doesn't have culture as it is a huge mishmash of different cultures but what it does lack is a national 'identity', for lack of better expression. Many countries have their cultures based upon places of history, castles and monuments as well as language and food and a monarchy. The majority of American buildings from the very early stages haven't survived and what has has been built in the past 250 years. Americans never had their own language, just adopted the British one and American cuisine is mostly non-existent. They obviously never had their own monarchy either (not that this is a bad thing) but were always a republic. Think about the UK and what emphasis the tourism trade put on the royal family as part of our 'culture', even if there is widespread distaste for them2
