Episode 4 of the Fascinating Video Series Focusing on New York City's Forgotten Dutch Roots

YouTube channel New Netherland Now is a channel dedicated to shining a spotlight on America's forgotten Dutch colonial past. Not only here in New York City, but all across the area we know now as New England, the Dutch were here first and established their own colony. In this fourth and final video of the series, learn about how New Amsterdam influenced New York, and further, America as a whole.

If you think the United States was just the result of group of conservative pilgrims fleeing persecution, you're wrong. Part of the United States can be traced to the revolutionary, relatively free and open Dutch Republic. The small colony of New Amsterdam had a much larger impact on America than previously thought.
