In 1832, Great Britain had virtual control of Oregon through its Hudson’s Bay Company. Fort Vancouver controlled the Willamette River and central Columbia River region, while Fort George (Astoria) controlled the mouth of the Columbia and coast line. Americans in Oregon before Tibbets had been explorers, fur trappers, scientists, and merchant sailors. Tibbets’ goal was different.
