Many artists and writers would try and capture the beauty in their art as well as in poetry and stories. Collectively, they formed the Hudson River School and included artists such as Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, and Frederick Church.

The Erie Canal opened in 1825 and connected Lake Erie in the Great Lakes region to the Hudson and onward to Europe. The cost of moving goods was reduced as well as the time it took to transport them. This was very important for America as it created an increase in the trade of goods and gave the economy a big boost.

fact-3
The Hudson River valley played an important role during the French and Indian war in 1750s and the American Revolutionary war.

The Hudson is surrounded by incredible beauty. In fact, so much so that it was nicknamed “America’s Rhine” because it was being compared to the popular area surrounding the German Rhine River.
