The 2009 quadricentennial celebrations commemorating the discovery of the Hudson River byHenry Hudson will also spotlight one of our deepest and most enduring national legacies—theDutch presence that has shaped not just the Hudson Valley but four centuries of American life.This lavishly illustrated book, a companion to the exhibition opening in June 2009 at the HudsonRiver Museum, takes needed stock of the remarkable past created by the settlers of NewNetherlands. Although the Dutch controlled the Hudson Valley only until ceding it to the Britishin 1664, the Dutch established the towns and cities that today define the region—from NewAmsterdam upriver to Fort Orange, today’s Albany. The Dutch heritage lives on, not only inhistoric estates or Dutch-named places like the Bronx or Yonkers but also in commerce, law,politics, religion, art, and culture.In thirteen original essays, this book traverses those four centuries to enrich and expand ourunderstanding of America’s origins. The essays, written by a superb team of distinguishedscholars, are grouped into five chronological frames—1609, 1709, 1809, 1909, and 2009—each marking a key point in the history of the Dutch in the valley.The topics range widely, from patterns of settlement and the Dutch encounter with slaveryand Native America to Dutch influences in everything from architecture and religion to materialculture, language, and literature.Based on fresh research, this book is at once a fascinating introduction to a remarkable pastand a much-needed new look at the Dutch role in the region, in the story of America’sorigins, and in creating the habits, styles, and practices identified as quintessentially New York’s.
