History of the State of New York

At the beginning of the 19th century, New York State boomed. The capital of the state of Albany became the largest transport hub of the Northeast USA, it was from here that the road to the west began for most of the settlers to the Great Lakes region.

In 1807, a regular steamboat service was opened on the Hudson River between New York City and Albany. Built by inventor Robert Fulton, the North River Steamboat, also known as the Clermont, was the first commercially successful steamboat in the world.

During the Anglo-American War of 1812-15, several major battles took place in New York State, including the Battle of Lake Champlain (Battle of Plattsburgh), when the Americans successfully repelled a British invasion from the north.

In 1825, the Erie Canal was opened, connecting the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean. In those years, the creation of a waterway through which grain could be transported from the fertile lands of the Ohio River Valley to the ports of the east coast of the United States was a very urgent task. Even the first US President George Washington wanted to dig a channel leading to the west, starting from the Potomac River, similar projects were also considered in the states of Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. But it was in New York that they were the first to create a cheap and reliable route to the US Midwest, which ensured the prosperity of the state’s economy .

The length of the canal, dug from Albany on the Hudson River to Buffalo on Lake Erie, was about five hundred and eighty kilometers. Thirty-six locks were built on it, which ensured the rise of ships going west to a height of almost one hundred and seventy meters. In the following decades, the Erie Canal was expanded and modernized more than once, remaining for a long time the main transport artery of the state.

The construction of the Erie Canal contributed to the growth of the population of the western regions of the state, it was thanks to him that New York received its famous nickname – the “Imperial State”.

In 1831, the first railroad was built in the state of New York, connecting the cities of Albany and Schenectady.

New York in the first half of the 19th century was one of the most progressive states in the United States. As early as 1827, slavery was abolished in the state, and in 1848, the first convention of fighters for women’s rights in the United States was held in the city of Seneca Falls.

In 1845, one of the first baseball teams in the United States, the New York Bridges (New York Knickerbockers), was created in New York.

By the forties of the century before last, New York City had become “the main gateway to America”, it was here that most of the rapidly growing flow of immigrants from Europe arrived.

During the American Civil War, New York gave more soldiers to the Union army than any other US state (more than one hundred and fifty thousand people). At the same time, in the initial period of the war in New York, there was strong opposition to President Abraham Lincoln and his fight against slavery. The fact is that the state’s economy at that time was very dependent on trade with the South of the USA, so many politicians were sympathetic to the Southern Confederation and tried to find a compromise with them.

At the same time, public opinion was generally on the side of the northerners, which inevitably led to conflicts. The most famous of these was the mutiny in New York City in 1863. Outraged by the conscription law passed by the US Congress , according to which the rich could pay three hundred dollars to pay off the service, the residents of the city took to the streets. The riots escalated into a riot that lasted three days; hundreds of people died and thousands more were injured. An angry mob ransacked the homes of black New Yorkers and lynched them. Only after the US government ordered the introduction of units of the federal army into the city, order was restored. The New York riot of 1863 is considered the most massive and terrible civil unrest in the United States in the history of the country.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, industry flourished in New York State. Numerous new companies were created, which subsequently grew into giants of the world economy. In 1889, in Rochester, Kodak began to manufacture inexpensive cameras and consumables for them, in 1892, the General Electric Company was founded in Schenectady.

The construction of a hydroelectric power station on the Niagara River provided cheap electricity to the plants and factories under construction. Buffalo, the eighth most populous U.S. city in 1900, became not only the largest inland port in the U.S., but also one of the centers of the U.S. iron and steel industry. It was here that back in 1881, for the first time in the United States, electric lights were installed on the streets, which is why Buffalo received the nickname “City of Light”.

The economy of New York State flourished until the Great Depression, which began with the crash of the New York City Stock Exchange in October 1929. It was in New York that Franklin Roosevelt, then governor of the state, successfully implemented social programs that later, when he took office as President of the United States, became the basis of his New Deal.

During the Second World War, New York played a very important role in providing for the US army and navy. The products of the state factories and factories turned out to be extremely in demand again, and, according to some estimates, more than 3 million soldiers and up to 85% of the cargo sent to Europe passed through the port of New York City (mainly through the Brooklyn Military Terminal).

The war affected not only the economy, but also the social sphere. Between 1941 and 1945, New York State passed a series of bills against racial discrimination.

After the war, many companies, attracted by cheaper labor, moved their manufacturing facilities to the US South. Industrial enterprises were closing in New York, but the importance of the service sector for the economy was growing.

Thanks to the development of transport infrastructure and the cheapness of cars, many residents of the state moved to the suburbs (for example, the population of Buffalo halved from 1950 to 2000). It was only in the eighties that the growth of the largest city in the United States of America, New York City, resumed.

In the second half of the 20th century, New York City became the “capital of the world” – the largest financial, commercial and cultural center not only in the United States, but throughout the planet.

On September 11, 2001, New York was attacked by terrorists. About three thousand people died, the towers of the World Trade Center, the tallest buildings in the city at that time, were destroyed.

Today, New York State continues to be one of the most developed states in the United States.
