The fur trade became one of the main economic ventures in North America attracting competition among the French, British, Dutch, Spanish, and Russians. Indeed, in the early history of the United States, capitalizing on this trade, and removing the British stranglehold over it, was seen as a major economic objective. Many Native American societies across the continent came to depend on the fur trade as their primary source of income. By the mid-1800s changing fashions in Europe brought about a collapse in fur prices.
Fur Trade Frontier was the Heritage Scrappers Club selection for June 2019. Though designed with heritage scrappers in mind, this collection, like the others in this series was deliberately created so it may also be used successfully with contemporary photos and with photos that are off topic as well.
Fur Trade Frontier was the Heritage Scrappers Club Mega in June 2019. Each month, club members receive a complete Mega Collection PLUS some bonus products to help you scrap your genealogy story. I call these Heritage Resources. The products below are not included in the Mega Collection once it goes into my stores, but they are available individually.
The August Mega is War & Occasional Peace. Pick up a sampler and get more information on how you can save from 72% – 82% on a new Mega each month on my Facebook Page.
