  Hudson Valley - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
The first Dutch settlement was in the 1610s with the establishment of Fort Nassau, a trading post (factorij) south of modern-day Albany, with the purpose of exchanging European goods for beaver pelts.
During the rest of the 1600s, the Hudson Valley formed the heart of the New Netherland colony operations, with the New Amsterdam settlement on Manhattan serving as a post for supplies and defense of the upriver operations.
During the French and Indian War in the 1750s, the northern end of the valley became the bulwark of the British defense against French invasion from Canada via Lake Champlain.

However, as Haque (2000) reports, although this particular flood was indeed the largest experienced by the Red River over the past century, it was not the largest to occur in historic times.
Their analysis indicated that six prominent flood events occurred at approximately AD 212, 440, 603, 1029, 1418 and 1605, "suggesting," in their words, "a quasi-periodicity of ~200 years," with "skipped" flooding just after AD 800, 1200 and 1800.

Jeffersonians criticized the treaty for restricting trade with the British West Indies, for granting British vessels most-favored nation status, for agreeing that American debts to British merchants would be paid back by the national government, and for closing off trade with France.

 Allen - The Social and Cultural Landscape of 17th C. New England
New England was an outpost in a part of the world that had only recently begun to interest the English.
Many explorers, cartographers, and map-makers still regarded the region as an island located between the "river of Canada," the St. Lawrence, to the north, and the Hudson River to the west.
While geographic remoteness did not attract and keep all migrating Englishmen in New England, the land offered isolation from English authorities and the unobstructed ability to reconstitute an English society that appealed to leaders and followers alike.

 Sir Anthony van Dyck - Biography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-01)
The fact that the young artist was allowed to work independently before actually joining the guild may indicate that he enjoyed the protection of Peter Paul Rubens, whose contacts with the court in Brussels enabled him to obtain special favors for some of his protégés.
During the late 1610s Van Dyck not only created his own independent religious and mythological scenes but was also active as Rubens' most important assistant.
He helped the master with a number of his large commissions, including the designs for the Decius Mus tapestry series (see the NGA painting, Decius Mus Addressing the Legions) and the ceiling decorations for the Church of Saint Charles Borromeo, the new Jesuit church in Antwerp.

At first, they portrayed split images to those who witnessed their actions.
In the early 1610s and 20s, explorers such as Captain George Waymouth, Sir Walter Raleigh and Richard Johnson characterized Indians as cruel, barbarous, and striking in their physical appearance.
As Takaki stated, "Indians seemed to lack everything the English identified as civilized-Christianity, cities, letters, clothing, and swords." On the other hand, the eyes of Christopher Columbus, Gonzalo and Captain John Smith observed an "agricultural people" capable of learning and becoming a civilization.
