  About Shreveport and its Consumers

The Louisiana city of Shreveport is one of the state's largest cities and also the seat of Caddo Parish. Seated on the banks of the Red River, Shreveport is linked in many ways with its sister city on the other side of the river, Bossier City. Many refer to the two cities as "Shreveport-Bossier". Situated in the northwest corner of the state near the borders of Texas and Arkansas, Shreveport serves as the commercial and cultural center of the tri-state region, a region which is widely considered to be the border between the West and the South. Shreveport was founded in 1836 by the Shreve Town Company, a corporation established to develop a town located at the junction of the Red River and the Texas Trail. The Trail had long established itself as a prime overland route into the newly independent Republic of Texas and, before that, into Mexico. The River had recently been cleared of 180 miles of debris clogging its channel, thanks to the efforts of Captain Henry Miller Shreve, commander of the US Army Corps of Engineers.
