John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company built Fort Union Trading Post in 1828 near the junction of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers in what is now North Dakota. In its heyday, the post was a busy place and employed up to 100 people and all employees were furnished board and lodging free of charge. It became the headquarters for trading bison hides and other furs with the Assiniboin Indians to the north, the Crow Indians on the upper Yellowstone and the Blackfeet who lived farther up the Missouri.

Fort Union will be an exciting center piece for the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial.  Please visit the National Park Service web site for more information.
