Louis Campau began his career in the fur trade at an early age, working for his Uncle Joseph and his father, Louis Sr. He fought in the War of 1812 on the American side and was an active participant in the Treaty of Saginaw in 1819. A shrewd purchaser of lands at key locations, he filed plats of two future Michigan cities, Saginaw (1822) and Grand Rapids (1833), and is considered the founder of both. He built a permanent home in Grand Rapids in 1827, and a number of brothers and nephews followed him there from Detroit.
