From 1857 to 1859, five men set out from the Red River area and began exploring and surveying the Canadian West. Their surveys would help lead the railway through in three decades time, and also change the western industry from fur trading to agriculture.
They would spur on European settlement, which would also push the Indigenous off their lands.
The Palliser Expedition changed the west, for good and bad.
