Demand for Fur • In 1670, British investors form the Hudson’s Bay Company • They send ships and explorers to the new world in search of furs • Demand is high for all fur products, especially the beaver hat

Demand for Fur • Britain, Spain, Russia, and the United States were all competing for control of the fur trade • Despite tension, they never went to war over territory, but instead negotiated agreements over land • By the early 1800s, Spain ended up with California, and Russia with what is now Alaska • Britain’s HBC and the Americans were left competing for the fur trade on the West Coast
