history of steamboat IN NORTH DAKOTA.

In the upper midwest, steamboats are most often thought to have existed solely on the Mississippi and the Missouri rivers. The Red River, however, also had steamboats. The driving force behind steamboating on the Red River was Sir George Simpson, the governor of the Hudson's Bay Company. Simpson wanted to reduce shipping charges for goods transported between Winnipeg Manitoba, and St. Paul, Minnesota.Steaming into Fort Garry in April 1871, the Selkirk stirred the competitive spirit of the Hudson Bay Company which immediately put the International back into full-time freight service.In the spring of 1872, Hill ostensibly sold his steamboat to the Hudson Bay Company. In reality, Hill and the Company formed the Red River Transportation Line and placed both the International and the Selkirk under the management of "Commodore" Norman Kittson.
