This chapter focuses on the decades separating the War of 1812 and the Civil War, during which the county of Columbia became something of a backwater. Returning from the west in 1847, one expatriate found Hudson's population “greatly diminished,” though more “in character than in numbers.” Though it had been “for many years one of the most beautiful and flourishing towns on the noble river whose name it bears,” Hudson now suffered an “all-pervading air of listless indolence,” but “the surrounding scenery” was “as beautiful as ever.”

Keywords:   War of 1812, Civil War, indolence, Columbia, Hudson
