Description

PETER STUYVESANT, THE LAST DUTCH GOVERNOR OF NEW AMSTERDAM by JOHN S. C. ABBOTT is a comprehensive history of the colony of New Amsterdam. From the Preface:It is impossible to understand the very remarkable character and career of Peter Stuyvesant, the last, and by far the most illustrious, of the Dutch governors of New Amsterdam, without an acquaintance with the early history of the Dutch colonies upon the Hudson and the Delaware. The Antiquarian may desire to look more fully into the details of the early history of New York. But this brief, yet comprehensive narrative, will probably give most of the information upon that subject, which the busy, general reader can desire.Chapters Include:CHAPTER I.DISCOVERY OF THE HUDSON RIVER. CHAPTER II.THE PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. CHAPTER III.THE COMMENCEMENT OF COLONIZATION. CHAPTER IV.THE ADMINISTRATION OF VAN TWILLER. CHAPTER V.WAR AND ITS DEVASTATIONS. CHAPTER VI.GOVERNOR STUYVESANT. CHAPTER VII.WAR BETWEEN ENGLAND AND HOLLAND. CHAPTER VIII.ANOTHER INDIAN WAR. CHAPTER IXAN ENERGETIC ADMINISTRATION. CHAPTER X.THE ESOPUS WAR. CHAPTER XI.THE DISASTROUS YEAR. CHAPTER XII.ENCROACHMENTS OF THE ENGLISH. CHAPTER XIII.HOSTILE MEASURES COMMENCED. CHAPTER XIV.THE CAPTURE OF NEW AMSTERDAM. CHAPTER XV.THE FINAL SURRENDER. CHAPTER XVI.THE OLDEN TIME. Illustrated
