Hudson River

Intercations With Native Americans: * There was a base among the harbor where it was convenient to trade different types of fur with the natives.

Locations * Hudson River: To the Dutch, it is known as the North River because it was the river that layed north of the South River. A harbor that rarely froze over. The land surrounding it was rich in natural products and there was a trading base where furs were traded with the natives. This river extended northward to the Mohawk River Valley. * Mohawk River Valley: This river valley eventually led into what is now known as the great lakes. * New York City: This was the New Netherland settlement and had a distinct character compared to Boston, Philadelphia, and other large East Coast cities. *Manhatten: Since the discovery of the Hudson River, Manhatten had the advantage of having the ability to become one of the world's greatest commercial cities. *

Timeline *1607-1611: Henry Hudson made 4 voyages. *1609: The Hudson, Connecticut, and Deleware rivers were chartered. *September 11, 1609: Henry Hudson sailed up a river hoping to find the route to Asia, but instead he had to turn back and named the river, the Hudson River
