sibley (1301 words)
Fort Osage (Fort Clark) in Jackson County, Missouri was abandoned because of its remote and non-defensible position against British forces.
In 1813, George Champlain Sibley, the government agent or factor at Fort Osage, argued in a letter to William Clark, the Governor, Indian Superintendent, and General of the Militia, that a trading factory should be reestablished with the Osage to maintain their friendship and to keep the British from establishing the same.
Sibley described the factory on December 31, 1813 as: “A two story Blockhouse, 30 feet long and 20 feet wide, built of large cottonwood logs, roofed with oak slabs well secured by hickory splits spiked on and armed with one swivel and three blunderbusses, affording sufficient room for the goods, for Trading and for fighting.
