View by Fisher of the Hudson River. The river flows from the Adirondack mountains to New York city. It was originally known by the Mohican name of Muh-he-kun-ne-tuk. In the 17th century it became known as the Hudson River after Henry Hudson, an English explorer who navigated the river in 1609. Large parts of the river are navigable and it quickly became a major route for the Dutch and English colonists, large settlements developing on its banks. During the American Revolution both sides fought for control of the Hudson.
