If you had only defeated the English in New Amsterdam, we would have been a much different country today. The intolerance of the English has had a great effect on the type of people we are. The Dutch on the other hand are a very tolerant people. New Netherlands was a diverse colony, with religious freedom. Once the English took over, everything went downhill.
