The Corps Of Discovery
By: Lexie MacDonald
The Missouri River.
The men had to push the boats up stream against the Mighty Missouri's Current. This caused many difficulties such as; Boats overturning, Back breaking work, Storms also made this extremely difficult.
Native American Tribes
Some of the tribes they encountered with were; Osage, Sioux, Cheyenne, Crow, Mandan, Blackfeet, Flathead, Shoshone, and Nez Perce.
Meriwether Lewis's Dog!?!?
This dog went with Lewis to explore the new plant species as well as the Animals. THis dog also went on the canoe rides on the river.
They discovered, Bison, Grey wolves, Badgers and even a Grizzly bear!!
In modern times if this bargain took place with the same price it would be 3 cents per acre.
Lewis and Clark made the decision to have the men carry ALL of their stuff (including Boats) around the falls for 17 miles.
After the journey was over York asked for his freedom and Clark declined but only ten years later York was freed.
They created a camp (Fort Clatsop) To stay in for the gruesome winter season.
She helped with routes, Trading with other native tribes, When a boat over turned she helped get all of the valuables WITH her baby on her back. She was an example of great courgae and kindness.
