what is this place? it seems to be empty. we could make some money here by building houses and trading!
Your land for our riches? You can still live here, but we are in charge of what this land is used for.
No Problem Mr. Hudson
Thanks, Boys! Now It's time to find some food
Henry Hudson, an English explorer sailing with the Dutch East India Company, was captain of a Dutch ship called, "Halve Maen" when he discovered a land with many animals and natives in his famous voyage of 1609
Oh my, look at all these beavers. I am going to be rich.
Hudson later docked at the shore and discovered that he wasn't the only one there. there were also native American Indians. Hudson bought it for almost $24.00 from them.
Hudson later settled there modernizing the way things were in the area. building places to live.
Hudson soon explored the land and found that there was lots of wildlife. He was, most excited about was the beavers, Since Beavers were very slow, they were easy to hunt and their pelt is sold for quite some money.
