Excerpt from Sail and Steam: An Historical Sketch Showing New Jersey's Connection With the Events Commemorated by the Hudson-Fulton Celebration, September 25-October 9, 1909

Few people appreciate the prominent part that New Jersey has played in the events that are to be commemorated at the Hudson-Fulton celebration. The Hudson River is looked upon by many as belonging exclusively to New York, and it is forgotten that twenty-three miles of the most important part of the shore is on the Jersey side of the river. The second largest city on the Hudson is Jersey City; and here are situated the terminals of the principal railroads which bring the traveller to the Hudson River. Many of the largest and swiftest ocean steamships which bring visitors to the beautiful Hudson from all over the world land at Hoboken, New Jersey. The largest section of the Palisades, one of the most celebrated scenic features of the river, is situated on the Jersey shore.

Many of the events which made the Hudson River so prominent during the Revolution were enacted on Jersey soil. One of the most celebrated of these occurred at Jersey City, when in August, 1779, a handful of patriots under the leadership of Major Harry Lee captured the forts at Paulus Hook from the British.

In those incidents connected with Fulton's introduction of steam navigation which are to be commemorated during the celebration, this state has had an important share. New Jersey, located as it is, between the Hudson River on the one side and the Delaware River on the other, and supplying the direct line of travel between New York and the north, and Philadelphia and the south, has always been vitally interested in navigation.
