In the new world, one chronicler expressed at the first sight of America, that, The Air at twelve leagues’ distance smelt as sweet as a new-born garden” (let.rug.nl).

The European writers image of America and the idea to advertised and persuade newcomers to the new world as an ideal situation obviously worked out.

He made it very close to Russia, but once again the ice got in the way. On Hudson’s third voyage, he partnered with the Dutch East India Company in the Netherlands with the same goal as the first two journeys. Although the ice made them turn back again, he sailed west across the Atlantic still hoping to find a new route. Instead, Hudson landed in what is now Nova Scotia, and kept sailing along the coast. When he reached the Chesapeake Bay, he turned back after he decided to explore New York.
When the English started to colonize the New World, they first tried to settle at a place called Roanoke. “At the end of the first year, all of the surviving colonists get on a supply ship to go back to England.” This might have stemmed from the fact that the colonists turned on the natives that were supplying them with food to survive. John White returned to Roanoke in 1587, this time as governor of the colony. His journal from that expedition documents the increasing hostilities between the Algonquian Indians and the English settlers. In this excerpt, White relates one of the English colonists’ more devastating mistakes: inadvertently attacking and killing some of their own Indian
The Pequots initially benefitted from these circumstances, expanding their territory over thousands of square miles from Long Island Sound to the Thames, Mystic, and Pawcatuck Rivers (Urbanus 2015:34), as well as the southern area of the Connecticut River. The earliest surviving account of this tribe comes from Dutch explorer Adrian Block in 1614. They were valued by the Dutch for trade in beaver pelts, belts, and wampum in the 1610s-1620s. However, in the late 1630s, the English had begun to covet the tribe’s land and resources. They soon sought to break up the Dutch-Pequot trade complex (Silberman
It struck on the most venerable areas, logistics the Achilles hill of the British military in America. As stated, the voyage to America was three months one way for logistics, troops, and correspondence if all things were favorable. The American also had their issues throughout the war since they had no standing army or navy. Some of the same issues that plagued the British effected the Colonials issues like logistics and the need for foreign intervention.

American whaling came to a disastrous halt during the American Revolution as British naval vessels blockaded American ports and harassed American shipping on the high seas, capturing or destroying many vessels and impressing many American sailors into His Majesty’s Naval service. American whaling ports suffered, but Nantucket in particular was strangled during the war, as whaling was the primary industry there. After the war, with heavy duties placed on the import of whale products into England, some Nantucket whaling families emigrated to France and England or north to Nova Scotia to continue their occupation and to avoid the heavy taxes. The post-war 1790 's were a short period of regrowth between the American Revolution and the War of 1812 as spermaceti candles and sperm oil for lighthouses was in demand in both the United States and Europe.
“Preventing our obtaining more subsistence by cultivating of new lands, [the French] discourage our marriages, and keep our people from increasing; thus…killing thousands of our children before they are born,” wrote Benjamin Franklin. Franklin regarded the importance of expanding westward necessary for the American colonists; more land was needed for the colonists to keep growing, but the French were in their way. As the continent of North America was tossed repeatedly back and forth from the hands of the French to the hands of the British, the American colonists could not wait to devour the heavily contested lands west of the Appalachians. But through a combination of politics and economics, the colonists were not allowed easy access to those rich lands. Land was of such importance to the colonists that it caused the American Revolutionary War.

The rulers influenced them to cross over to the New World because it 's possible to expand their empires to America.
The arrival of these hardworking foreigners would impact the city forever. Before the immigrants arrived to the Land of the Free, New York City was home to English and Dutch settlers. They would bring their European lifestyle of government and colonization to the land. The settlers became accustomed to their new home, taking advantage of the harbor for shipping and the open land to build their homes. As the land began to prosper, New York earned the title of “the growingest town in America” (New York, An Illustrated History ).
