It was centered at Fort Christina, now in Wilmington, Delaware, and included parts of the present-day American states of Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
Henry Hudson is credited with the discovery of the area which is now Delaware. In 1631, the first colony of Delaware was established. However, by 1632, that colony had been raided by natives, who killed all the settlers, and set fire to their buildings. In 1638, it was colonized by a Swedish group, then taken over by the Dutch. It was then taken over by the British, who seized the territory without a fight. Delaware…
