A town on the Canadian side of the Detroit River.
Rises in La Loche Lake, lat. 56 deg. 10' N., long. 109
deg. 40' W., and after a course of 1000 miles, empties into Hudson Bay.
The mouth of the river was discovered by Munk, a Danish navigator, in
1619, but it was not until 1774 that its upper waters were discovered by
Joseph Frobisher (q.v.), and explored by Thomas Frobisher and
Alexander Henry, the Elder (q.v.), in 1775. The Churchill was
formerly known under various names: Danish River, in honour of Munk;
English River, so called by Frobisher; and Missinipi, the native name.
