This is Fort Whoop-Up. This is the largest of about 40 of the whiskey trading posts and it was made by J.J. Healy and Alfred Hamilton.
This shows a scene of a First Nation person trading furs for whiskey.
This shows how more First Nations wanted this new supply that was introduced to them for the first time.
Soon, many of the First Nations people started to get addicted to this new good. more and more First Nations came to these forts.
So many First Nations are coming that the Europeans are getting 10 times the amount of furs than what they are trading their goods for.
Many of the First Nations started to get ill because of the whiskey. this happened because whiskey contained many bad chemicals such as pure alcohol, rotten chewing tobacco, painkillers, soap, and red ink. But, it also contained a few things which weren't so harmful such as tea leaves, red peppers, lye, ginger, and molasses.
