New York - State History. New Yorkers are rightfully proud of their state's many achievements and contributions. 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. Existing as a colony of Great Britain for over a century, New York declared its independence on July 9, 1776, becoming one of the original 13 states of the Federal Union.

The next year, on April 20, 1777, New York's first constitution was adopted. 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. NEW JERSEY HISTORY KIDS. Vermont - Kids Page: Home. Kids - Florida Division of Historical Resources.
