The History of New York
Of all the greatest cities in the world, few stand equal next to New York for its sheer grandeur, boasting more cultures in one place than practically anywhere else on earth, that are easily able to coexist amicably and for the benefit of everyone. From Broadway to Harlem, the city is impossible to downplay for any reason, and the lure of big potential and big prosperity keeps people wanting to move there from all over the world. The force of immigration into New York has been so powerful and influential in the overall evolution of the country, that there are countless films and books on the subject at all stages in American history. Many of these events have been very important, ultimately shaping the New York we see today.
Early History and New York's Importance
Any term paper on the history of any major US city includes Native settlement, because the same resources like water for drinking and irrigation and wildlife for hunting and cultivatable land for farming are desired by all human settlements. As such, it was ten thousand years ago when the first Native Americans settled, and 100 years after that when the major tribes materialized. The prominent Algonquian and Iroquoian tribes prevailed in the New York area and state, and it was not until around five hundred years after their first settlement that other European settlements occurred. The same situation was happening all across the Northern and Southern US territories at the same time during the 1600/1700's, and this area did not play much importance in this time, but New York was very pivotal during the American Revolution.
The Battles of Saratoga
New York’s primary importance lies with the decisive battle between the Americans and the British during the battles of Saratoga. Geographically New York lied in-between the northern and southern colonies, and so the British General knew that if they could be cut off by defeat in New York they would have a much greater chance of winning the war. These battles served as a major technical triumph on the American part, and after the first two major battles Burgoyne’s men were heavily outnumbered by the Americans. As the American Revolution Swept through the country, New York’s role was far from over in the role of warfare which would continue for the next 100 years.
