New York City
New York City began with an establishment of English rule over Dutch New Amsterdam and New Netherland. The sight of Modern New York City was the theater of the New York Campaign, which was a series of major battles during the early stages the American Revolutionary War. After said war, it was under British occupation until the end of it, and was the last port British ships evacuated in 1783, New York was cosmopolitan from the beginning, established and governed largely as a strategic trading post. In years 1754-1763, the city was a base for British operations in the French and Indian War. This conflict united the colonies for the first time in common defense, and eliminated the main military threat that the colonists had relied upon British to defend them from.
