Robert Cavelier de La Salle dreamed of building a chain of fur-trading forts across the Illinois Country—a vast region primarily encompassing what is now Illinois and Missouri—culminating in a seaport at the mouth of the Mississippi River. La Salle was a talented leader, explorer, and negotiator with the local Native American tribes, and with his faithful friend Henri de Tonti, he pressed on resolutely against ongoing hardship and misfortune in his effort to establish New France for the glory of his home country.
