Historians spoke at a conference celebrating the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage in 1609.

Thomas Lewis showed slides during his talk “Revolutions on the Hudson.” He is the author of The Hudson: A History (Yale University Press; October 30, 2005).

Vernon Benjamin delivered his talk “The River and the Valley: A Symbiotic History.” He is the author of the forthcoming book, The Hudson River Valley: From Wilderness to Woodstock.

The moderator was Thomas Wermuth, author of Rip Van Winkle’s Neighbors and co-editor of America’s First River: The History and Culture of the Hudson River Valley (State University of New York Press, 2009). After both presentations the panelists held a discussion with Professor Wermuth as there were no questions from members of the audience.
