Bismarck,

city (1990 pop. 49,256), state capital and seat of Burleigh co., S central N.Dak., on hills overlooking the Missouri River; inc. 1873. The trade center for a large spring-wheat, livestock, and dairying region, Bismarck is also a financial and telecommunications center, and development of the oil reserves in the nearby Williston Basin is important. Lewis and Clark camped nearby in 1804–5. With the beginning of river traffic in the 1830s, a steamboat port called the "Crossing on the Missouri" emerged here. In 1872, Camp Greeley (later Camp Hancock) was erected to protect workers building the Northern Pacific RR. When the railroad reached the fort the next year, a town was laid out, subsequently named Bismarck in the hope of attracting German investment in the railroad. Bismarck boomed as a river port and railroad center, a gateway for western expansion, and supply point for the Black Hills gold rush (1874). It became the territorial capital in 1883.

While obsidians from sources in the Bismarck Archipelago (Admiralty Group and New Britain), particularly from the Kutau/Bao source flows on New Britain, were particularly widely distributed during the Lapita period, reaching as far west as Sabah, as far south as New Caledonia, and as far east as Fiji (Summerhayes 2009), other source types have more restricted known distributions.

Under Bismarck, the kingdom had begun a process of taking control of railways in the late 1870s, including the main railway that ran through the center of Berlin with four elevated lines, the Stadtbahn.(32) The commission's plan envisioned the city renting platforms and the interior space of the viaducts on which the rails were built.(33) A centralized, rail-based market hall network, based on the examples of London and Paris appeared as the most modern and most functional option, one that could quickly open up the Prussian countryside, even the Baltic and North Sea coasts, as sources of food for Berlin.
Schollgen and Sturmer argue that whereas Bismarck could still control a complex situation by skilfully building up a system of alliances with various other European "great" powers, German foreign policy in the age of imperialism became more aggressive in its quest for colonies.
