Westward Expantion Final
by Logan Bates
Me and my family were enslaved by William Clark. I moved west to explore along with Lewis and Clark. I was the the african american first slave to explore there. I helped Clark on his exploration west for america. Lewis Clark and I helped early americans reach their destiny to move from coast to coast. I had a lot of challenges and risked my life many times going hunting for bison, protecting Clark and building shelter.Ten years later I eventually settled in Kentucky as a free man. I worked at a freight business there and ended up living with my wife. My final goals of my life were to live a peaceful life with my family.
