“a bastion of peaceful coexistence”

Between 1828 and 1867, Fort Union was the most important fur trade post on the Upper Missouri River. Here, the Assiniboine and six other Northern Plains Indian Tribes exchanged buffalo robes and smaller furs for goods from around the world, including cloth, guns, blankets, and beads. A bastion of peaceful coexistence, the post annually traded over 25,000 buffalo robes and $100,000 in merchandise.

The Fort is amazing, I was transported into the past. I walked into every open door, read every sign, stared at the walkway entrance and even checked to see if the door to the beautiful house would open. Guess what, it does. It is a fascinating place to learn about our history. It is very peaceful.

Its a long drive but for a historic stop it was worth it. Rangers were great with the kids. Its a very different fort from what we are used to seeing in that it was designed for trade not defense.
