Fort Wrangel history has been the primary focus of my research in Alaska. The Stikine River is an important part of that history. It begins with the Stikine Tribe migrating down the Stikine and later becoming the gateway to three gold rushes. It is a transboundary river, dividing Canada and the United States. During the gold rush period, river boats transported passengers, their gear and freight between Fort Wrangel and Glenora and/or Telegraph Creek in BritishColumbia. Prospectors used the Stikine to get to the gold fields in 1862, 1878 and 1898. The Stikine River was the original gateway to the Klondike Gold fields–before Skagway!
