The Life and Times of Henry Hudson, his ship the Half Moon, and the Hudson River


This is a replica of the Half Moon, Henry Hudson's ship, in 1609.

In 1609, Henry Hudson sailed up a river that was to adopt his name. Henry saw a beautiful river that took his breath away and wrote of the lush landscape as he sailed. As you read about Henry Hudson and his voyage, his river, and the importance of the river, we hope you, the reader, learn to appreciate the Hudson as much as we have.
