Additional Details:
Hudson Trading with the Indians on Manhattan Island. Henry Hudson, on his voyage of discovery up the North River in 1609, disembarked at different places on Manhattan Island to explore the surrounding country. The native Indians made friendly overtures and began to trade with Hudson, who found it an easy task to obtain valuable furs in exchange for a few paltry trinkets.
