Fort Osage--opening of the American West by Rhoda Wooldridge( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Lewis and Clark, on their expedition of 1804, marked the promontory at the bend of the Missouri River near the present-day town of Sibley in Jackson County for the first fort site west of the Mississippi, our national hold on the West was feeble. The boundaries of the Louisiana Purchase were undefined. England with its large fur trading companies was encroaching from the north; Spain was moving in on the Southwest; and the Pacific Coast was up for grabs to any country who would take it. Even Congress and men in Washington considered it a matter of not-so-quiet desperation. The War of 1812 and the subsequent Treaty of Ghent that followed the building of Fort Osage settled the danger of English encroachment on the old Northwest Territory. A treaty with Spain in 1819 defined the boundaries of the Southwest. These boundaries, which the opening of the Santa Fe trade in 1821 more or less obscured, became recognized boundaries. America trappers and traders looked toward the west--to the Pacific in the north, the west, and the south. All this was opened with the building of Fort Osage in 1808. And there it stood for sixteen years as a citadel between the Mississippi and the Rocky Mountains. The history of Fort Osage has been written by a well-known Missouri writer, Rhoda Wooldridge. She has gathered her material from fragmentary records, and more complete records kept by George Sibley, the factor of the trading house at Fort Osage, and William Clark who was involved in the building of the fort. Fort Osage has been restored in recent years and is a monument to the man-made "Gibralter" erected to guarantee the settlement of the American West. The modern town of Sibley in Jackson County, Missouri, is the site of the restoration
