Fort George and the Union Fur Company on the Upper Missouri River

In “Fort George and the Union Fur Company on the Upper Missouri River,” W. Raymond Wood traces the history of a fur post established in 1842 on the Missouri River southeast of present-day Fort Pierre. The Union Fur Company operated Fort George for just three years, but remnants of the post survived into the 1880s, and a small community on the Lower Brule Indian Reservation took its name. Wood, professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Missouri, has spent decades as an archaeologist and historian of the central and northern Great Plains.
