There once was a man who saved the US

It was the year 1634 by anyone's guess

He went up to the north

Solved the problem at the source

And put Dutch Manhattan back in the atlas.

(This limerick!  It doesn't make a lot of sense, probably because I am San Diego-ly out of practice.  But it is about a very interesting and good historical book, Journey Into Mohawk Country, which you should check out.  Two limericks in a row for George O'Connor!)
