Meet the heroes of Amsterdam.
History of Amsterdam
When and how the first human settlers, ancestors of today's Native Americans, arrived in the vicinity is still debated; however, by the full onset of European settlement, the Mohawks of the Iroquois had solidified their hold on the region by pushing the Algonquian Mohicans across the Hudson River.
