Voyages to New Netherland

1609–1664

The timeline linked here tells the story of New Netherland through the perspective of ships. Voyages to New Netherland typically left in December or January and arrived in spring, after the winter ice had melted and furs could again be brought down the river. Ships appear on the timeline by year of arrival. Scroll through the years using the scroll tool in the black band at the bottom of the timeline or click on a year to move to it quickly. Click on the arrow in the ship bubble to read more. Think about how ships might have interacted with each other. Click on the “3d” bubble on the bottom left for a different view of the timeline.
