What did Louis Jolliet accomplish?

Louis Jolliet, the French-Canadian explorer, went through Lake Michigan to Green Bay, then followed the Fox River, through marshes, to the Wisconsin River. From the point of the later settlement of Portage, he continued exploring until he entered the Mississippi River near Prairie du Chien, meaning Jolliet was the first to explore and map the Mississippi River for Europe (obviously Native Americans had "discovered" the river previous to him). After mapping several hundred miles, Jolliet stopped within 500 miles of the Gulf of Mexico, where he turned back at the mouth of the Arkansas River. They followed the Mississippi back north and learned from local natives of the Illinois River, which was a shorter route back to the Great Lakes. He had turned back for fear of meeting other (Spanish in particular) European explorers.

On July 4 1863 general Ulysses S. Grant defeated the confederate army at Vicksburg Mississippi and the union took control of this city why was this an important victory for the union?

Vicksburg and Port Hudson, two fortified ports on the Mississippi River, were important during the Civil War for their strategic location. Should the Union be able to take these Confederate strongholds, they would finally command the Mississippi River in its entirety. So long as these strongholds remained in Confederate hands, the South would remain unified and defiant of the Northern attempt to break it in two.

Map of where the Red River Rebellion 1869-1870 took place?

The Red River Settlement itself was centred at the confluence of the Red River and the Assiniboine River. The main focal point was at Upper Fort Garry, a Hudson's Bay Company post. This is now in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba. The area is now a tourist destination called 'The Forks.' Settlers also spread along the banks of both rivers for several miles, on long and narrow farms of approximately 400 feet water frontage by a mile or so in depth. The population around 1870 was approximately 11,000. Most events in the Rebellion happened in the Settlement itself, but some events took place as far away as Pembina, south of the Settlement at the US border, and Portage la Prairie, about 50 miles to the West. It must also be said that some of the events took place hundreds of miles away, in Ottawa, the Capital of Canada. Google 'map' plus 'red river settlement' and see what comes up.
