Summary

New York describes life in the early colony, including such details as the importance of the fur trade, wars instrumental to New York’s development, the discrimination suffered by various peoples under Peter Stuyvesant, and the games the colonists enjoyed. It discusses the early explorers of the area, such as Henry Hudson and Samuel de Champlain, and the Dutch West Indies Company's role in the formation of the colony. An entire chapter is devoted to the American Indians, such as the Wappinger and Montauk, who lived in the area. Readers will also learn about post-Revolution New York, including the continued presence of slavery and New York City's designation as the capital of the new country, as well as the part it played in the formation of the Constitution.
