Events

* First Fort Dauphin, was built near Winnipegosis, Manitoba.

* Vitus Bering, in service of Russia, reaches Alaska; Russians soon trade with natives for sea otter pelts.

* Alexei Chirikof, with Bering expedition, sights land on July 15; the Europeans had found Alaska.

* Russians Vitus Bering and Aleksi Cherikov 'discover' Alaska and bring back fur skins (Bering shipwrecked on return and died); the Fur Rush is on.

* The lives of early Alaskans remained basically unchanged for thousands of years, until Russian sailors, led by Danish explorer Vitus Bering, sighted Alaska's mainland in 1741.

* The Russians were soon followed by British, Spanish, and American adventurers. But it was the Russians who stayed to trade for the pelts of sea otters and other fur-bearing animals, interjecting their own culture and staking a strong claim on Alaska. Once the fur trade declined, however, the Russians lost interest in this beautiful though largely unexplored land.

* Fort Bourbon established near present day Grand Rapids, Manitoba.

* François-Josué de la Corne Dubreuil appointed commandant at Fort Kaministiquia.
