The article focuses on the historic voyages in the Hudson River. In 1609, Henry Hudson and Samuel de Champlain embarked on voyages that would change New York State, the U.S., and the world. These explorations led to trade between New York City, the Great Lakes, and the Hudson River, creating a gateway to the nation's interior. Two centuries later, Robert Fulton piloted the first steamboat up the Hudson River. In 2009, New York State will celebrate the Hudson River Quadricentennial, a commemoration of these historic voyages.
