1841. Describe what happened between Simpson and McLoughlin.
In 1841, Simpson toured the area again and discovered that the fur trade was not expanding as he had hoped. He decided to consolidate the operations of the maritime fur trade. All coastal posts were to be closed, with the exception of Fort Simpson, and the Beaver would be used as a floating fur-trade post to trade with other villages on the coast.
Okay. I read through my book, and I don't know what area it's talking about, for a sec I thought Oregon territory, cause they both wanted it, but I don't know.
And is that what happened between Simpson and McLoughlin?
Yes, Oregon territory is correct, and yes that is EXACTLY what happened between McLoughlin and Simpson,
