Lewis & Clark Expedition

By: Mckenna Atherton

Great Falls

As Lewis and Clark reached the falls they soon learned that the news of only a half mile trek around the falls was actually a 18-mile trek. Which had cactus and and a very rough terrain. Later on after the trip it was called the Great Portage. It took them almost a whole month to complete.

Trade Items

On the expedition Lewis and Clark had to trade items with Native Americans to get the supplies they needed. Some of the items they traded were medals, pipe hawks, sheets of iron, beads and more. They traded these things for horses and food and shelter.

Lewis's Dog, Seaman

Most used to believe Seaman's name was "Scannon" but it was just because of blurred ink in the journal's. Many of Lewis's journal entries suggest Seaman saving their lives many times. Seaman was a newfoundland dog so that means that he was a working dog. He kept alert at night for when bears came around camp.

Sacagawea

Sacagawea was only 16 and pregnant when she joined Lewis and Clark on their expedition. She was very knowledgeable. She knew a lot about the land and was amazing as an interpreter. She was able to help Lewis and Clark while keeping a baby alive. She was married to Charbonneau. She was kidnapped at a young age. While on the expedition she was reunited with her brother. She helped them find many edible plants along the way. One time a boat flipped over and she was able to save very very many important things needed for the expedition while saving her babies life.

Prairie Dogs

Clark wrote that he discovered a small "village of small animals that burrowed into the ground". He found them in Boyd County, Nebraska on September 7, 1804. He said they make a whistling noise. But sounded almost like a bark. Which is where they get the name prairie DOG. They live in short prairie grass.
