Half Moon Daily Log

On Henry Hudson's voyage up the Hudson, one of his officers, Robert Juet, kept a log of the ship's navigational record and other observations. This journal is now a valuable source of information about what the Hudson River Valley and its people were like during that September in 1609. It also tells us a lot about what Hudson and his crewmates were like, and how they felt about what they were seeing.

Every day, we will post entries from on board the Half Moon to let you know how our voyage is progressing. We hope it will help you learn about what we're discovering, and something about us, too. Check back often!
