Transcript of Henry Hudson
Henry Hudson spent his life searching for different routes to Asia but failed on his quest. Despite these misfortunes, Henry Hudson considered as famous explorer and made many important contributions to geography and further exploration and settlement of North America. In 1609 Hudson was hired by Dutch East India Company as a commander of the Half Moon. And once again his travels were blocked by ice, but he did not return home. Crossing the Atlantic Ocean his crew visited Nova Scotia, Chesapeake Bay, New York Harbor and explored Hudson River. He returned home without finding the all-water route to the East. The ship was locked in ice again... They hardly survived the winter, and Hudson decided to continue explore farther to the west but the crew mutinied. Hudson, his son and 7 others were put in small boat and set adrift. His discoveries of Hudson Bay and James Bay area, north of Canada gave right for England to claim a large part of Canada as their territory. Many places bare his name in Northern America such as Hudson Bay, Hudson Strait, Hudson town(Quebec) in Canada, Hudson City, Hudson River in the US, many schools and streets as well. 2000-2010 2013. Web. 23 Jan. 2013 1996–2013 They were never seen again.
