Shreveport was founded in 1805 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. Shreveport is the commercial and cultural center of the area where Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas meet. Many people in the community refer to the city of Shreveport as "The Port City." I visited here as part of a wedding party.
