In May 1792, American merchant sea captain Robert Gray sailed into the Columbia River, becoming the first recorded European to navigate into it. The voyage, conducted on the Columbia Rediviva, a privately owned ship, was eventually used as a basis for the United States' claim on the Pacific Northwest, although its relevance to the claim was disputed by the British. As a result of the outcome the river was afterwards named after the ship. Gray spent nine days on the river trading fur pelts before sailing out of the river.

dbo:abstract
  • L’expédition du Columbia est l'exploration en mai 1792 de l'embouchure du fleuve Columbia par le navire américain Columbia Rediviva sous le commandement de Robert Gray. Les membres de l'équipage sont devenus les premiers occidentaux connus à naviguer sur le cours d'eau. À la suite de cette première, le fleuve fut ensuite nommé d'après le navire. Gray passa neuf jours à négocier l'achat de fourrures avant de quitter le fleuve. Cette expédition, effectuée par un navire privé américain, a finalement été utilisée comme base pour la revendication par les États-Unis du Nord-Ouest Pacifique, bien que sa pertinence par rapport à la revendication fut contestée par les Britanniques.
