Arab immigration to the United States began when Arabs accompanied Spanish explorers to the US in the 15th century. During the Revolutionary War, horses exported from Algeria replenished the American cavalry as Morocco was the first country to officially recognize the independence of the United States in 1786 in what is known as the "treaty of Friendship". However, Arabs did not start immigrating to the United States in significant numbers until the 19th century. Since the first major wave of Arab immigration in the late 19th century, the majority of Arab immigrants have settled in or near large cities. Roughly 94 percent of all Arab immigrants live in metropolitan areas, and nearly one third of all Arab Americans live in or around just three cities: New York, Los Angeles and Detroit. While most Arab-Americans have similarly settled in just a handful of major American cities, they form a fairly diverse population representing nearly every country and religion from the Arab world. There are still a lot of Arabs immigrating to America. Egypt is in the top 10 of countries where the most immigrants came from.
