Sample text

In April 1624, the Dutch West India Company sent out the ship Nieu Nederlandt (New Netherland), which carried 30 families, many of whom were French-speaking Walloons. A little more then 100 men, women, and children arrived at the mouth of the Hudson River. Rather than stay together and establish one colony, the company wanted to establish trading posts throughout the lands it claimed. Eighteen families were sent 150 miles up the Hudson River, where they established Fort Orange. Other families were sent to start trading posts on the Connecticut and Delaware Rivers.

The conditions were deplorable when Peter Stuyvesant stepped off the ship, the Princess, onto the docks of New Amsterdam on May 11, 1647. Stuyvesant had been employed by the West India Company for a number of years, and he had lost much of his right leg during a battle with the Spanish in the Caribbean. His wooden leg was decorated with silver. As Stuyvesant inspected the city, he saw much that needed attention. More than 1,000 people lived in New Amsterdam, and the town was a mess. 30 New York The fort was in poor repair, livestock wandered everywhere, people threw their garbage in the streets, and public drunkenness was a serious problem.

Lutherans, Quakers, Puritans, and Jews all felt the director’s prejudice. Although Stuyvesant accepted the directions of the company relating to the Jews, he openly persecuted any Quakers who came into New Netherland. One Quaker who passively resisted the prejudice of Stuyvesant was publicly beaten and then banished from the colony. On December 27, 1657, a group of Quakers who lived in Flushing (now in Queens, part of modern-day New York City) were so upset by the governor’s actions that they wrote a letter of protest to him.
