Henry Hudson


A New Path

Holland and England kept searching for a northern sea. Henry Hudson was hired to sail to China across Europe near the Artic Circle. His crew was tired of the ice. Hudson agreed to go west instead and he went through the Atlantic Ocean.

Hudson Valley

Hudson and his crew reached Maine. Hudson's ship entered a narrow harbor. Hudson thought he found the northwest passage, but Henry Hudson realized he was in a river when the water got shallow for his boat. Holland claimed North America and Dutch settled in Hudson Valley

Ice Trap

English merchants paid for Hudson to sail across the Atlantic Ocean again. Instead Hudson reached Canada. Hudsons ship froze and his ship was trapped in ice because Hudson was in Canada
