New Amsterdam in New Netherland, 1653 - 1664


The City of the Dutch West India Company, 1653 - 1664, by Townsend MacCoun (1845-1932), published in 1909. The Dutch settlers controlled the Hudson River Valley from 1609 until 1664. They established New Netherland, a series of trading posts, towns, and forts that laid the groundwork for towns that exist today. The Dutch lost New Netherland to the English during the Second Anglo-Dutch War in 1664. Source: New York Public Library.
