The English did not so much take New York from the dutch, they

convinced them to a trade of territory.

I do now know the exact details of the deal, but I know Surinam

was controlled by the English at that point in time, and power of

this territory was transferred to the dutch in exchange for New

York, there might have been a lot more to the deal, but this is

what I know.

your a stupid tard they where forced bye sacahgaweha
