Lecture to examine French colonial presence in the Detroit River region

Eighteenth-century Detroit is often depicted as a fur-trading post in the historiography of the colonial Great Lakes, says historian Guillaume Teasdale, while in fact, hundreds of French families from the St. Lawrence valley settled in the Detroit River region during that time.

“As a result, Detroit developed into a thriving French colony that was connected to the western Great Lakes through the fur trade,” says Dr. Teasdale, a post-doctoral fellow at the Centre for Research on French Canadian Culture at the University of Ottawa.
