Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

New Sweden was around the mouth of the Delawere river, placing it in Delawere, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It was actually incorporated into the Dutch colony after a few years and some brief figthing. I have read somewhere that the swedish peasants were yelling "We are Dutch, We are Dutch!" in joy as they realised how power had shifted. What was enjoyed was the liberation from the stiff late-feudal diversion of society into groups with different rights and obligations with the peasants on the bottom of the scale.

Then later on England conquered the territory from the Dutch.
