LaSalle and the Exploration of the Mississippi

The great French explorer helped carve out an enormous wilderness empire for his country. After exploring along the Great Lakes and the Illinois River, in 1681 La Salle sailed down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico -- claiming the vast region for his king, calling it Louisiana.

His efforts to start a colony at the mouth of the Mississippi turned to disaster, and he was murdered by two of his own men in 1687. Despite this, he remains one of the most important figures in the French exploration of North America.
