Early European Exploration of the Mississippi River DeSoto’s Discovery of the Mississippi, 1541 (Gilder Lehrman) In 1682, La Salle sailed down the length of the Mississippi River—the first European to make this journey. The trip took three months. La Salle met with different American Indian groups, including the Chickasaw and the Natchez. When he reached the Gulf of Mexico, La Salle claimed the Mississippi River and the lands around it for France. La Salle had big plans for the Mississippi River. He wanted to build more trading posts along the river and increase the fur trade from Canada to the Gulf Coast. - Adapted from eduplace.com Source 2 The Founding of French Louisiana 2

With only male settlers, the colony needed more supplies and additional colonists, preferably women and children. Soon after his brother’s departure, Bienville surprised a British ship he found sailing on the Mississippi River. The London merchant Daniel Coxe had sent this ship from Carolina on the Atlantic coast. Coxe and his backers wanted to plant a colony on the river. In order to drive away the British, Bienville announced that the Mississippi River and the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico belonged to France. He tricked the British into believing that he had a large group of French troops nearby, ready to attack if they should refuse to leave. Not wanting to risk battle, the British fled downriver and back to Carolina. They never again returned to threaten French claims to the region. Bienville’s trick became known as English Turn, and as a result, the French believed they should build a fort at the mouth of the river as soon as possible. - Adapted from Louisiana: A History (6 th Edition) by Cummins, Schafer, Haas, and Kurtz 1699 Iberville established a camp at Ship Island and became the 1st European to locate the mouth of Mississippi River from the Gulf of Mexico 1700 Forts established near Biloxi and near the mouth of the Mississippi River 1701 Bienville becomes commandant of Louisiana 1702 Fort near Mobile established 1714 Settlement at Nachitoches established 1716 Settlement at Natchez established 1718 New Orleans founded (and later became the colonial capital) 1719 Fort near Baton Rouge established

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
