by Bruce W. Dearstyne
English | 2022 | ISBN: 1438487142 | 484 Pages | True PDF | 5 MB


In this lively and engaging book, Bruce W. Dearstyne presents New York State history through an exploration of nineteen dramatic events. From the launch of the state government in April 1777 through the debut of the musical play Hamilton in 2015, Dearstyne puts the fascinating people who made history at the center of the story: John Jay, the lead writer of the first state constitution; Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the irrepressible crusader for women's rights; Glenn Curtiss, New York's aviation pioneer; Jackie Robinson, the first Black man to play baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers; and Lois Gibbs, an environmental activist. This new edition is updated with four recent significant events, including the stories of New Yorkers who joined the Occupy protests and those who struggled through Superstorm Sandy. The stories in this book illustrate the spirit of New York-the elusive traits that make New York State unique-and the complexity of its history.
