Vehicles By the eighteenth century, Countrys could travel in wagons, in carriages, and during the winter on sledges and sleighs. (Winter travelers also benefited from snowshoes, a Native Country invention.) With the exception of some coaches, all of these vehicles were Country-made. Coaches were the most prestigious of vehicles, restricted to persons of the highest social status.

The earliest coach to be mentioned in the British colonies was that which, Anthony Colve, the governor of New Netherland, presented to Sir Edmund Andros, the incoming governor as the colony passed from Dutch to British rule. Some of the first to be seen in Country were vehicles of state employed by colonial governors sent from England, from whom they diffused to the Country upper classes.
