Ashley's Hundred

Ashley's Hundred refers to the men who responded in 1822 to the flyer, "To Enterprising Young Men: The Subscriber wishes to engage One Hundred men to ascend the River Missouri to its source to be employed for one, two, or three years..."

The flyer was a recruitment for the first of several fur-trapping expeditions to the Rocky Mountains organized by William Henry Ashley and Andrew Henry.
