The concept of a "touchdown" did not exist in American football until 1876, and at that time it didn't award any points -- it simply gave the team the opportunity to kick a field goal. The first time points were awarded for touchdowns was in 1883, and they were worth 4 points. The kick after the touchdown (i.e., the "try") was also worth 4 points. Note that the term "touchdown" was coined because the ball actually had to be touched down to the ground in the end zone. This requirement was removed in 1889.

originally, the touchdown was not the goal of a football game, but instead a means to get a free kick at the uprights because of its roots in soccer and rugby. however, i believe in the late 1800s it was changed where you score a touchdown you get 5 points plus the chance for an extra point, totaling at 6 points. If i am not mistaken, it was changed again about 1920 to the 6 points plus the extra point attempt, just like it is now. In 1900, a touchdown counted for 5 points. It was increased to 6 in 1912 in American football. Canadian football didn't raise the value from 5 to 6 until 1956.
In American and Canadian football, scoring a touchdown is worth 6 points. The team than has a choice to kick for a single extra point or pass or run for two more points. This play is called the convert, which essentially means trying to score again.
