2017 marked the 235th anniversary of the beginnings of Dutch-American relations. On April 19, 1782, John Adams was received by the States General in the Hague and recognized as Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States of America. The United Netherlands became the second foreign country to recognize the independence of the United States.This, however, was the beginning of only the official relations as the economic ties had already been strong between the American colonies and the Dutch Republic. The Dutch supplies proved indispensable to the Americans during their war of independence against Great Britain. The small Caribbean Island of St. Eustatius played a key role as a transit port between Europe and the American continent. John Adams arrived in the Netherlands in the summer of 1780, but he had a long way to go till he and the American revolutionary cause found support not only among Dutch businessmen who had an interest in furthering economic cooperation and establishing diplomatic relations, but also in the official circles. Based on primary sources, the essay discusses the early history of Dutch-American relations and the way John Adams achieved diplomatic recognition and received financial support for his country from the Dutch Republic.
