The history of billiard
It's speculated that the name "pool" derives from the French word "poule", which means hen. The oldest use of the word "pool" to define billard-like games was made in 1797 in a Virginia newspaper.
The pool games played today are descended from the two English games imported to the United States back in the 19th century. The first of them was the English billiards which became American four-ball billiards, which is the same game but with an extra red object ball to increase the scoring opportunities. This game was the most popular billiards game in the mid 19th century until the carom game straight rail became more popular.
The second and more influential game was the pyramid pool. During the 1850s, a variant called fifteen-ball pool became popular. Another fun info is that prior to 1889, object balls were all red-colored, and can only be differentiated by numbers on them. English pyramid pool and life pool players were the first to adapt to the balls with different colors. Last addition was the stripes!
