Journal Entry

Meeting the Shoshone

August 13, 1805

Today we encountered a Native American tribe, the Shoshone. They came toward us with full speed on horses. I ran towards them with a flag of peace. We were then offered many gifts and affection from the Natives as a sign of peace.

Signed, Meriwether Lewis
