Pierre-Joseph Celron, sieur de Bienville, with 200 to 250 French soldiers and some Indians, was sent in 1749 to renew and strengthen France's claim to the Ohio country and drive out the British. During navigation of the Allegheny, Ohio and Great Miami rivers, he buried lead plates with the text declaring the French land claim. He also sought Indian cooperation in the fur trade.
