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. 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. The Erie Canal, completed in 1825, greatly enhanced the importance of the port of New York and caused populous towns and cities to spring up across the state.
