After years of prosperous fur trading in the eastern parts of the United States, many of the indigenous fur-bearing animals had been hunted to extinction. However, exploration in the West revived the fur trade and it became an essential economic staple in the nation. The fur trade would encapsulate many of the social dynamics of the early nineteenth century-relations with Native Americans, foreign policy, exploration of the nation's natural resources, and the establishment of business and industry as a motivating force in political life.
