"It may be hard to believe now, but there was a time when the 'wall' in Wall Street referred to a stockade built to protect Dutch fur traders and when 'Yankees' were English newcomers, not baseball players.  Native Americans and Europeans traded furs and beads made of sea shells with each other.  ... No one who visited this place in 1676 would have envisioned that it would become a center of population, power, and wealth a century later."  So begins this history of New York during the colonial period.  Take a trip through the history from colonial days right through the American Revolution.
