Henry Hudson was the greatest explorer that never found what he was looking for. Hudson was looking for the North west passage. But he was the first to navigate the Hudson bay, Hudson strait, and the Hudson river.
The Half Moon on the Hudson River.
More than 100 years after Columbus, Hudson went on 4 voyages. Each voyage was a fail. In the year 1609 Hudson joined the Dutch East India as a commander.
Hudson took charge of the Half Moon.
When Hudson and his crew met the Natives some died, clashed, and or traded with them. But Hudson, his son, and some crew members were still alive and/or still with him.
Hudson died in 1611 after his crew committing mutiny.
