(You can download a 8.5×11 printable version below. ) Then I found period movies for each time period listed below (I will continue to add to this list). NOTE: The timeline is copyrighted.

New York - State History

This synopsis is adapted from a brief history previously printed in the Legislative Manual. Before the year 1900 New York harbor was visited by Giovanni Verrazano in 1524, and the Hudson River was first explored by Henry Hudson in 1609. The Dutch settled here permanently in 1624 and for 40 years they ruled over the colony of New Netherland. It was conquered by the English in 1664 and was then named New York in honor of the Duke of York.

In many ways, New York State was the principal battleground of the Revolutionary War. The first government of New York State grew out of the Revolution. Alexander Hamilton was a leader in the movement which ended in the development of the Federal Constitution, and he was active in its ratification. In following years, New York's economic and industrial growth made appropriate the title "The Empire State," an expression possibly originated by George Washington in 1784. NEW JERSEY HISTORY KIDS.
