Fact of the Day: New Sweden

New Sweden was a colony settled in present-day Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania in 1638. It was conquered by the Dutch and became part of New Netherland in 1655.

  1. I believe New York was originally called New Amsterdam.

    Hope you had a great Easter - only Easter Monday holiday left here and then the mass return from beaches and the country areas back to Brisbane - a police headache with the impatient brigade.
    I am glad I am not part of that ritual anymore.
    Cheers
