New York was first called the New Netherlands when the Dutch settled here in the early 1600’s. Fur trading was a central part of contact with multiple cultures and very important to colonists. A surprise brutal attack by the English in the year 1664, to take the New Netherlands was successful. The sheer numbers and tactics were brutal and particularly violent. This led to surrender. The English renamed the state New York for the Duke of York and history was made. Over the next century, New York was settled primarily by the Germans, more English, Scottish, Irish, and because of the existence of Slavery, Africans. In the early 1700, New York’s had 16% of its population listed as slaves. During this same time, the French and Indian War raged on and off for more than 70 years. This left many to be forced from their homes or even worse dead. The fighting was particularly gruesome. New York grew and grew. As the English placed more and more restrictions on this new colony, the revolt began. The Revolutionary War came to New York and the British held rule over the colony again. England sent many ships with more than 30,000 sailors and soldiers to take their colony back. History tells of murders, battles, surprise attacks, and the horrors of the bloody rampage until wars end. The separation of the 13 colonies was complete but not without setbacks. The growth of New York continued throughout the years. The Erie Canal was built in 8 years and is 363 miles long. This took a lot of men to work, a lot of jobs were created, and the immigrants continued to flow into New York. This was a huge undertaking for the men who designed it and saw it through. As swamp fever would take a thousand lives and entire crews would have to be replaced. Fortunately the number of immigrants flowed and the project was completed. The ones who perished of fevers and tragedy would be left behind, not knowing they should have passed over to wander aimlessly in New York. The Erie Canal opened new trade routes and extremely active transportation routes; this increased the population of New York even more. New York was growing so rapidly, the seven of the largest cities in the world were in New York. New York was a main route of Southern Trade and during the Civil War, and many went to fight. New York sent the most men and provided the most money of any state for the advancement of the Union Army. Many to only return injured, infected, conflicted, or in spirit. The visions of battle, dismemberment, amputation, disease, dysentery, starvation and death left souls unsettled. Lost souls which do not know they should have passed over wander aimlessly.

These violent battles of the war were over the brutality of slavery and had grown to epic proportion. The Civil War was brutal and most times the soldiers would wish for the end to be near. Lack of food left many starving, lack of clothing left many cold, and the lack of medicine for injury left many doctors to amputate or die of the infection. New York continued to grow. Europeans continued to flow through New York, first from famine in their own country, then from World War 1. Before 1900, the estimate of 8 million immigrants to come through New York was staggering. By 1925, New York was the largest city in the world. By 1929, the Great Depression hit New York particularly hard. A 25% unemployment rate left many to starve and live on the streets. Diseases ran amok. The city, so overcrowded, was not an opportunity for the immigrants, it became a death sentence. With all this deprivation, came crime, murder, chaos, and purgatory on earth. From the suffering to the numerous violent battles, the souls left behind to complete missions, lost between life and death now roams New York. New York is well known in the haunt world for its portals of hell and the revengeful souls who live within its confines. The intense energy these souls expel, helps the living keep they at bay for the remainder of the year. Unfortunately, they must return to do their bidding as part of their mission in purgatory. Demons and messengers of the under-lord return to experiment and do research in their dungeons and chambers in the chill of the fall during the season of Halloween, under the spells of pure wickedness. New York is home to many haunted attractions that are well known in the haunt world. These haunted houses are well worth the trip.
