This is a free presentation on maps and mapping, particularly of historic Dutch maps as the Dutch history and colonies grew.The Dutch New Netherlands in North America stretched from New Jersey to Albany, and they were early successful traders with the Delaware and other Algonkian peoples. They were also early to trade with the Mohawk and Oneida. Many towns and villages are named from Dutch interaction with the Lenape peoples.
