Here’s the history of New York City you don’t learn in school.

Traveling up the Hudson, we will examine the early Dutch and English settlements, including slavery and free Blacks. Next, we will look at New York during the American Revolution, when British troops controlled the city. We will conclude this semester by examinIng the part New Yorkers played in creating the Constitution and our country.
