Shreveport, Louisiana, was founded in 1836 by the Shreve Town Company, a corporation established
to develop a town at the juncture of the newly navigable Red River and the Texas Trail, an
overland route into the newly independent Republic of Texas and, prior to that time, into Mexico.
The Red River had been cleared by Captain Henry Miller Shreve, commanding the US Army Corps of Engineers, of the 180 mile long raft of debris that had clogged its channel since time immemorial. In Shreve's honor the Shreve Town Company and the village of Shreve Town were named. On March 20, 1839 the village of Shreve Town was incorporated as the town of Shreveport. In 1871 Shreveport was incorporated as a city.
