New Netherlands

so um history, the Dutch had a colony called New Netherlands and capital was well New Amsterdam, and I wanted my OC Northeast US region to be the adult version of New Netherlands and I wanted the Netherlands to be his dad, cause I thought it be funny if laid back goofy Netherland had a super-serious son while super serious England had a goofy son

Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that way

well they changed it cause the English took over and the colonies didn't want their colony to be set on fire,5.&text=The%20breaking%20point%20came%20in,were%20then%20technically%20at%20peace.

and I am very sorry if my Dutch isn't good, I used Google Translate and yes I know it not very good but I wanted New Netherlands/Northeast to speak Dutch

and New Netherlands is wearing the old Orange, White and Blue Dutch flag
