About American Samoa
American Samoa is an unincorporated and unorganized territory of the United States. It is located in the South Pacific Ocean, just to the East of the larger country of Samoa. International rivalries in the later half of the 19 th century were settled by an a treaty in 1899, in which the country of Germany and the United States of America divided the Samoan land area. The United States formally occupied its portion and kept a strong presense.
The western islands of Samoa which once belonged to the United States are now the independent state of Samoa. A cooling station was built by the U.S. Navy, in Pago Pago Bay for its Pacific Squadron. During the second World War, US Marines based in American Samoa, out numbered the local population. This has historically had a huge cultural influence on the country, which is still evident in many parts of the country today.
