From December 1884 through May 1885, New Orleans hosted a now nearly forgotten event: The World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition. Seeking to commemorate the first export of cotton from the United States in 1784, the National Cotton Planters Association selected New Orleans, the largest city in the south, as the site for the great international exposition. The citizens and business community of New Orleans, eager to promote the city's recovery from both the ravaging effects of the Civil War and the aftermath of Reconstruction, welcomed the chance to stage an event which would attract visitors and investors to the commercially revitalized city. Established in 1875, the Cent ...

Coming to terms with Early New Netherland - New York History: 1610-1614 While most histories of New Netherland begin with Henry Hudson’s 1609 voyage and skip to the founding of New Amsterdam in 1624, it’s the period between that holds the real fires of creation—not simply for the Dutch colony but all that followed in New York and the United States. In the years 1613-1614 traders Adrian Block, Hendrick Christiaensen and Jacob Eelkens forged an agreement with people of the First Nations that established the first world trade center in the New World and altered the course of history. This is the epic story of what these forgotten founding fathers accomplished, from first contact to ...

Coming to terms with Early New Netherland - New York History: 1609, Henry Hudson Revisited History books tell us that Henry Hudson was the first European to discover and explore the river that now bears his name in 1609, setting the stage for what would become New Amsterdam—today’s New York City. As with most foundation myths, however, the closer one looks the murkier things become. We feel compelled to ask: Is Henry Hudson’s legacy hogging history’s spotlight? We intend to look beyond Hudson’s legacy to see him as his peers did; to peel back the layers of history and understand better what Hudson’s watershed voyage of 1609 really meant. To do this we will look closely at the stand ...
